Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie on Tuesday said the team is looking to upgrade the offensive line this offseason and said they’re looking to add a new quarterback, with new general manager Dennis Allen reportedly interested in taking a QB with a quarterback-needy roster.
“We’re really excited about our offensive line,” McKenzie told the Oakland Tribune-Review on Tuesday.
“I think that’s a huge area that we’re looking at.”
The Raiders are in need of a pass rusher, but McKenzie is expected to be interested in signing a veteran pass rusher.
The Raiders also have some defensive players that are still unsigned, including free-agent defensive tackle Shilique Calhoun and free-agency corner Jalen Ramsey.
Oakland could be the next team to target a veteran offensive lineman, though McKenzie has already been linked to a number of names.
The Oakland Raiders have made a habit of bringing in players that would likely help them win with the right roster, but some teams might be wary of signing them, especially given that McKenzie would be on a short leash with McKenzie’s limited salary cap space.
A couple of other teams could also look to the Raiders to add talent to the position, including the Los Angeles Rams, who are reportedly interested, as well as the Tennessee Titans, who could be interested if they don’t have any draft picks.
