The Las Vegas Raiders are a team to watch when the 2021 season officially kicks off as they retooled their roster and added several players who can help them get back to the playoffs.

The Raiders were able to supplement their current young core of players with solid veterans who should help immediately, one of those being speedy wide receiver John Brown. Brown played the 2020 campaign with the Buffalo Bills, who were one win away from making Super Bowl LV but were unfortunately eliminated by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Although Las Vegas in the midst of a playoff drought, Brown believes they are trending in the right direction and that the team is in a good position to make some noise.

“Oh yeah, I definitely can see that,” Brown said. “First, it starts off with respecting each other and we do that real well. And with the communication on the field, we do a great job with that and these guys, they want it real bad. So, I feel like we’re in a great spot.”

Despite their lack of on-field success in recent years, Brown was high on the Raiders and even went so far as to say that he turned down more money to come play for the Silver and Black. It is a ringing endorsement and speaks to the positive improvements Las Vegas has made as they look to fight their way back into the postseason.

As far as Brown’s fit goes, the receiver is a legitimate downfield threat who should be able to stretch defenses and give Derek Carr more reliable options to throw to. The Raiders already have a speedy option in Henry Ruggs III and a mismatch in Darren Waller, so head coach Jon Gruden should have a field day scheming up his offense in what is widely expected to be a competitive AFC West.

Although fans will have to wait and see whether or not Las Vegas will be a legitimate playoff contender, Brown is right that they are approaching things the right way, and hopefully, it results in more wins.
