Raiders Free-Agency Tracker: Updated Signings, Rumors and Grades

There are few teams in the NFL that have more to accomplish than the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have fewer than 50 players on the roster and don't have a lot of cap space to be active in free agency—which kicked off at 4 p.m. EDT.  

There isn’t a position on the team where the Raiders couldn’t use a player or two. The Raiders need bodies at cornerback, defensive tackle, defensive end and linebacker at the very least. There’s also a need for a left guard and right tackle on offense.

Since the Raiders don’t have much cap space, don’t expect them to be busy early in free agency. It’s also not Reggie McKenzie’s style to spend a lot of money in free agency, so don’t expect fireworks out of the gate.

Perhaps the biggest priority for the Raiders is to re-sign a couple of their own players in Desmond Bryant and Philip Wheeler.

What the Raiders do in free agency won't likely provide much clarity on what the team will do with their No. 3 pick in the draft because the team just has too many needs to fill.

Keep this article bookmarked, as it will be updated throughout free agency with all the latest rumors and signings with analysis and grades for each move.
