Breaking: Raiders Agree Deal To Sign $22.1 Million DT

After his release from the Dolphins, the Raiders are now favorites to sign defensive tackle Christian Wilkins.

Wilkins was one of many Dolphins players released before free agency in an attempt to come in under the salary cap. He quickly rose to the top of the market’s most sought-after goods. Wilkins would be a huge addition for Las Vegas’ defense, even though the Raiders won’t be the only club interested.

In the 2023 season, the defensive tackle recorded nine sacks, a new career high. 23 QB hits and 65 tackles were added by him. In terms of sacks and quarterback hits in 2023, Wilkins would have behind only Maxx Crosby if he had been a member of the Raiders. Wilkins finished his five-year Miami career with 355 tackles, 50 quarterback hits, and 20.5 sacks.

With an average of 330.9 yards per game, the Raiders’ total defense ranking at the end of the 2023 season was 15th. Their least strong suit was their run defense, which allowed 118.5 YPG to rank 21st overall.

With Antonio Pierce leading the way, Las Vegas hopes to be back in the running for postseason play. Christian Wilkins up front would help the Raiders move closer to their objective and strengthen the defense.
