Three more names the Raiders could look at in free agency

The Oakland Raiders have still only signed one free agent so far, Marshall Newhouse. But there are still lots of free agents available for Oakland to make upgrades to its roster. Here’s a look at some more free agents we haven’t discussed yet:

Sen’Derrick Marks

The Raiders are in need of an interior pass rushing presence and Marks is a guy that could bring it. He was cut after the Jaguars signed Calail Campbell but it says something that the Jags tried to trade him before cutting him. Marks started his career off somewhat slowly in Tennessee before breaking out with the Jaguars. But then Marks tore his ACL and missed most of the 2015 season. Last year was his first full year back and he didn’t look 100% yet but still managed to get 3.5 sacks, hich is more than anyone on Oakland not named Khalil Mack or Bruce Irvin got. He will come cheap and has big potential as a rotational piece.

Bennie Logan

While I have preached for most of the offseason that a pass rushing defensive tackle it what the Raiders need the most, with the departure of Stacy McGee, they could also use some depth at the run stuffing role. At one time Logan was one of the best nose tackles in the entire league. He is no longer that guy but he’s still capable of being a very good rotational piece for the Raiders. He’s a veteran with a ton of experience and will come at a very reasonable price.

DeAndre Levy

This one is risky but could be worth it. At one time. Levy was a Pro Bowl caliber linebacker but injuries the past two seasons have severely derailed his career. After being one of the best outside linebackers in the game in 2014, Levy had a hip injury in 2015 and a knee injury in 2016 that have kept him sidelined for all but six games. But before these injuries, he was solid health wise and rarely missed a game. The Raiders should have their doctors take a look at Levy’s knee and hip and if they believe he has the potential to return to his previous form, the Raiders could get one hell of a player at one hell of a price.
