Breaking NFL News: Raiders Dump Overpaid, Underwhelming RB

In a day where there has been constant NFL news, the Las Vegas Raiders and their brain trust are having a busy day. Earlier today, the team sent by Nick Mullens to the Minnesota Vikings. Clearly, the Vikings liked what they saw from Mullens and were willing to trade a seventh-round pick for his services. However, that development is now overshadowed by the Raiders’ cut their offensive stars.

Many fans were baffled when Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock signed Kenyan Drake in the offseason. Defense was clearly a priority, along with other positions. Running back was not one of them. So signing Drake to a lucrative contract made no sense. However, it looked like the Raiders now had a legitimate punch with Drake and Josh Jacobs. Unfortunately, it never really panned out for these two. Whether you want to blame injuries, health, or the use of the scheme (or lack thereof), Drake just couldn’t get it going for the Raiders. Today, with the Silver and the Black under a new regime, the team has parted ways with Drake.

NFL News: Raiders ambitiously overpaid for Drake’s services

No two ways about it: Gruden was a terrible talent evaluator. Decisions like paying $11 million for one year of a running back’s career are more often than not a death knell.
