5 Free Agents the Oakland Raiders Should Target This Offseason

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

After a 2013 season that saw the Oakland Raiders win only 4 games, they really don’t have a lot to hold to other than the win over the San Diego Chargers early in the season. They did fight hard and stay close in several games but there definitely needs to be changes before next season if they want to win more than a handful of games.

Their offense wasn’t the best but it was okay other than giving up too many sacks. In a perfect world they could improve their overall defense and offensive lines, things would look better. That of course is where free agency could come in for them. The salary cap does limit them so they can’t just go out and sign everyone they want but other teams are in that same situation.

That’s okay because what they need are core players that can help the offense win the battle at the line of scrimmage and defensive players who can hopefully keep the other team off of the scoreboard. There probably needs to be more changes than just players here and there but whatever other changes are made can be helped out by the presence of a few new players.

Everyone listed in the following 5 free agents the Raiders should target are interchangeable to a certain degree. These are the type of players this team needs and if possible they should go after them. If not they still need to go after others. Do you have a certain NFL free agent in mind the Raiders should aim for? Leave a comment below with that and any other information.

Kevin Boothe – OG

The Raiders need more options at the offensive line of scrimmage and whomever they can bring in that is capable of stepping up would be a good move. Boothe is a potential target.

Eugene Monroe – OT

Once again Monroe could be a potential upgrade on the line of scrimmage worth looking at.

Zach Strief – OT

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Strief has been part of the Saints for a long time and is well respected on the O-line. He should be someone they target for sure.

Michael Johnson – DE

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Johnson is one potential plus if the Raiders could bring him in to help with rush defense and also get a little pressure on the opposing quarterback.

DeAngelo Hall – DB

The pass defense was not good for the Raiders this season. Bringing in someone like Hall, if they could sway him, would be at least one potential shutdown corner option.
