Raiders News: Denzelle Good Retires From NFL
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Las Vegas Raiders enter the 2022 season looking like a darkhorse contender after the additions they made in the offseason.

However, while Davante Adams and Chandler Jones will help the Raiders on both sides of the football, the biggest question mark remains the offensive line. Las Vegas made the suspect choice to retool their o-line last offseason, and it was evident early on during the 2021 campaign that it was a work in progress.

The Raiders figured to be improved on that front with reinforcements returning but had to be shocked when Denzelle Good suddenly announced he was retiring via Paul Gutierrez of ESPN:

Las Vegas Raiders offensive lineman Denzelle Good, who was returning from a torn ACL in his left knee and was expected to reclaim his starting job at right guard, retired suddenly on Monday, less than a week after the start of training camp.

Good had finally finished rehabbing a torn ACL he suffered in Week 1 last year and was ready to go for the start of this season, but he explained his reasoning for retiring via his Twitter account:

With Good now gone, the Raiders will need to find his replacement. As of now, Dylan Parham and Leston Cotton Sr. are the favorites to start in his place, so it will be interesting to see who separates themselves during training camp.
