In what may be the Oakland Raiders last season at the Oakland Coliseum, there is a certain wave of excitement surrounding the 2018 Oakland Raiders unmatched around the rest of the NFL. Much of the hype surrounding the franchise is mainly because of one man on the sidelines - head coach Jon Gruden. The Raiders signed Jon Gruden to a historic 10 year, $100 million contract to become the franchise’s next head coach, shattering all other previous contracts signed by head coaches. Gruden has finally left the television booth for the sidelines, where he will look to turn this talented Raiders roster into a Super Bowl contender.
In addition to signing Jon Gruden, the Raiders made another splashy acquisition by signing former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson. Nelson and Amari Cooper form an elite 1-2 punch in the receiving corps for Derek Carr to throw to. Speaking of Derek Carr, he will look to rebound from an up and down 2017 season, hoping to build off of 2016 when he was a potential MVP candidate. With an improved offensive line and more talented receiving corps, expect Derek Carr to take the next step towards becoming an elite quarterback in the NFL. The Raiders also signed former Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin to split time in the backfield with Marshawn Lynch. Beast Mode’s return to the NFL was one of last year’s great stories in the NFL, and it should be once again in 2018. When clicking on all cylinders, this Raiders offense has the potential to be one of the most dominant and exciting units in the NFL. Jon Gruden and the Raiders offense will be can’t-miss entertainment in 2018.
Defensively, the Raiders are led by All-Pro outside linebacker/defensive end Khalil Mack. Mack is one of the best pass rushers in the NFL, with over 40 sacks thus far in his 4-year career. Linebacker Bruce Irvin and Pro Bowl safety Reggie Nelson are also key factors in this Oakland defense that will look to take major strides in 2018.
