Safety left team in free agency in 2020

In 2018 and 2019, there were rumors Raiders coach Jon Gruden was shopping 2016 first-round pick Karl Joseph in trades.

In 2019, the Raiders declined to give the fifth-year option to Joseph, which basically signals the player was a failed pick in the first round.

In 2020, Las Vegas, flush with salary-cap room, allowed Joseph to sign a meager one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns, officially...

It would likely take a lot more to get up to trade for Slater and Parsons than Paye and Vera-Tucker, who may be...
