The Oakland Raiders (soon to be Las Vegas) are coming off of a 2019 campaign in which they won seven games and missed the playoffs yet again.
But based on the way the Raiders played during the first half of the season, they may not be as far away as we thought.
Oakland will also have quite a bit of cap room to work with this offseason, so it should be able to fill some of its needs via free agency.
Here are three free agents the Raiders should already be targeting:
3. Devin Funchess, Wide Receiver
Here is the thing with Oakland: it needs wide receivers. Badly.
The Raiders thought they were going into 2019 with Antonio Brown in their receiving corps, but we know how that worked out. Now, Oakland has Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow and, well, not much else.
As solid as Williams is, he is not a true No. 1 wide out, and Renfrow is a slot guy.
While the Raiders can certainly draft some receivers, they should probably take their chances in free agency, as well.
Funchess could be a great low-cost option, as he is a talented receiver who played in just one game with the Indianapolis Colts this past season before a broken collarbone ended his year.
He wouldn't be the final solution to Oakland's aerial attack, but Funchess would definitely make it better, and at 6-foot-4, he would serve as a big red-zone target for Derek Carr.
2. Blake Martinez, Linebacker
The linebacker position is to the Raiders' defense what wide receiver is to their offense, meaning they need help at that spot.
Fortunately, Oakland will have quite a few really good linebackers to choose from, but Blake Martinez could represent the best option.
Martinez, who has spent the first four seasons of his career with the Green Bay Packers, just completed a monster 2019 campaign in which he racked up 155 tackles, three sacks and an interception.
The 26-year-old also tallied 144 tackles in both 2017 and 2018, so, needless to say, the guy makes plays.
While the Raiders are also in desperate need of pass rushers, Martinez would instantly give them one of the best linebackers in football and would make everyone else's job easier.
1. Robby Anderson, Wide Receiver
Part of me wanted to list A.J. Green here, but Green turns 32 years old this summer and did not play at all in 2019 due to an ankle injury.
For a quasi-rebuilding team like the Raiders, I'm not sure Green would be the best idea.
A better gamble would be Robby Anderson, who is yet to post a 1,000-yard campaign in any of his first four seasons but is just 26 years old (he turns 27 in May) and has the exact type of game-breaking speed Oakland needs.
Anderson caught 52 passes for 779 yards and five touchdowns with the New York Jets this past season and has regularly been a solid contributor in spite of the Jets having an anemic offense ever since he joined the NFL.
The Raiders' offense isn't exactly much to write home about either at the moment, but a receiver duo of Anderson and Williams to go along with breakout tight end Darren Waller would be nice.
