Former Raiders free agency acquisition sees greater strides in offseason
Trent Brown signed with the Las Vegas Raiders last offseason, strengthening the right side of their offensive line. After helping the team improve from 4-12 to 7-9 in 2019, Brown believes the Raiders are poised to improve even more in 2020.
“I feel like we definitely got better this year,” Brown said, via ProFootballTalk. “We took strides last year and we’re going to continue to take strides and just put one foot in front of the other. Even with the additions last year, me being one of them, you can look at those guys and trust the organization . . . to put the right players in place for us to win some games and win championships. With Henry Ruggs, and we still got one of the best backs in the league and we got the best offensive line in the league. I mean, it’s about to be scary. I’m excited. I definitely think it’s going to be special times in silver and black for years to come.”
Throughout this offseason, the Raiders have made a flurry of moves on both sides of the ball. For the offense, Las Vegas notably added Marcus Mariota, Jason Witten, and Nelson Agholor in free agency. Then, in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Raiders selected Henry Ruggs, Lynn Bowden, and Bryan Edwards.
At the same time, Las Vegas spent a boatload of money in free agency in an attempt to bolster their defense. Altogether, the Raiders notably signed Cory Littleton, Nick Kwiatkoski, Maliek Collins, Damarious Randall, and Prince Amukamara.
Brown, who won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2018, knows what it takes to be a contender in the NFL. While the Raiders haven’t had much success in recent seasons, Brown is confident the team will reverse their fortunes in 2020.
