Las Vegas Raiders
Here is where the list starts to get interesting. The Raiders inked veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a three-year deal this offseason. Shortly thereafter, the franchise learned that the oft-injured signal-caller needed another surgery, as his foot failed to heal properly.
Early reports say Garoppolo will be back in time for Week 1, but even if he is, does this roster win more than five or six games in 2023? One look at their schedule, and it becomes difficult to find more wins than that, regardless of who is starting behind center.
A roster that won 10 games and earned a playoff berth is largely unrecognizable at this point. The new regime, spearheaded by Dave Ziegler and Josh McDaniels, allowed talented players to walk in order to get “their guys” instead. I admire the commitment to their culture, but at what cost?
It will require a disastrous 2023 season for the Raiders to be in a position to take Caleb Williams. Unfortunately for the Silver and Black fandom, a cataclysmic disaster is on the horizon. But do not fret, because a prize is waiting on the other side of the storm.
Williams going to Vegas would help the fan base get over the instability it has suffered over the past decade. He immediately becomes the most talented quarterback in recent memory for the Raiders… perhaps ever. Davante Adams may not be the top receiver in the NFL for long, but Williams would extend the All-Pro wideout’s career.
