Jeff Fisher gives Raiders advice on pending move to Las Vegas
Former NFL head coach Jeff Fisher knows a thing or two about making a major move. During his time as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams, Fisher remained at the helm as the NFC West franchise moved across the country to Los Angeles.
Although his time in Los Angeles didn’t last very long, Fisher was a key part of the process as the team physically moved across the country. As a result, the former NFL head coach is now dishing out some advice as the Oakland Raiders gear up to make their way to “Sin City” with Las Vegas looming large.

The Raiders are on the upswing just in time to actually make the move from Oakland to Las Vegas. In addition to garnering three first round picks in 2019, the Raiders also made a huge splash via trade as the AFC West franchise infamously managed to acquire All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers. With a veteran starting quarterback in Derek Carr already in place, Brown will surely make an immediate impact upon officially suiting up in Oakland in 2019.
Unfortunately for the Las Vegas-bound Raiders, though, the AFC West has become one of the toughest divisions in the entire league. In addition to the Raiders, the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers all wait in the wings as each franchise has improved significantly throughout this offseason. However, both the Chiefs and Chargers have the ability to run away with things like each managed to do in 2018, which doesn’t bode well for the Raiders.
