The Oakland Raiders are playing their final season in Oakland, California. Starting in 2020, the Raiders are relocating to Las Vegas and a brand-new stadium (Las Vegas Stadium). The buzz surrounding the new-look Raiders is palpable in their final season in Oakland. Under the leadership of second year coach Jon Gruden and first year general manager Mike Mayock, the Raiders are aggressively trying to build a winning roster prior to their relocation. Last season, the Raiders completed a blockbuster trade sending their franchise player Khalil Mack to Chicago. While the trade was unpopular, it did allow the Raiders to stockpile 2019 draft picks. Time will tell if these recent draft picks will pay off. In the offseason, the Raiders completed a huge trade to acquire All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown. Brown becomes the unquestioned lead receiver for Derek Carr. There is still significant optimism in the organization regarding the potential of Derek Carr. Team owner Mark Davis desperately needs a successful season in 2019 prior to their move. The Raiders have a young and talented roster, but it is yet to be seen if they have the right pieces to compete in a loaded AFC West conference. With the highly publicized upcoming relocation to Las Vegas, and a brand-new state-of-the-art stadium in the works, the Oakland Raiders will be an exciting team to watch this season and for years to come.
