Breaking: Raiders And Antonio Pierce Agree Deal To Sign $15 Million CB

The Las Vegas Raiders will be looking to add players to their roster in order to contend for a postseason run, therefore the 2024 NFL Draft will be crucial. For this team, particularly with head coach Antonio Pierce at the helm and new general manager Tom Telesco handling the front office, securing that first-round pick is imperative.

Even though there have been many reports that the Raiders would trade up, they still hold the 13th overall pick, so it’s unclear what they will do with it.While adding a player to the secondary or strengthening the offensive or defensive lines is still a possibility, the quarterback position is still open.

At Alabama’s Terrion Arnold Pro Day, one of the best cornerback prospects was on show. Arnold was observed chatting with Pierce following the practice, and he claimed that the Raiders coach had told him via The 33rd Team that he liked him.

Arnold, who excelled at Alabama and was a complete shutdown corner for the Crimson Tide the previous season, has a lot to offer. As the closest defender, he let up only four passes of 20 yards or more, and his opponent’s quarterback rating was only 50.7. In 2023, Arnold was selected to the First Team All-American after racking up 63 tackles, including 6.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions, and twelve passes defensed.

The Raiders could certainly use a little more help in the backend of their defense, especially when it comes to creating turnovers as that has been an issue for the team over the past couple of years. There are a lot of directions the Raiders could go, but Arnold looks to be a player right up the alley of Pierce.

Raiders to meet with former All-Pro CB Tre’Davious White

The Raiders are not afraid to go after cornerback because they recognize that the position still needs work.

Tre’Davious White, a former All-Pro cornerback who the Buffalo Bills waived earlier this offseason, will meet the team. White was maybe the finest player in the NFL at his position three years ago, but he has struggled with injuries the last three seasons.

White will need to demonstrate that he is healing well and prepared to resume his prior level of performance, as his most recent injury was a torn Achilles that occurred in Week 4 of the 2023 season.
