How the Las Vegas Raiders should prioritize their offseason needs

The conversation that continues to dominant the Las Vegas Raiders offseason is who will be Derek Carr’s successor after nine years as the team’s starting quarterback.

Rightfully so, quarterback is football’s most important position. But when you look at how the roster in Vegas is currently constructed, it’s clear they are more than just a quarterback away.

Once Derek Carr’s salary comes off the books, the Las Vegas Raiders will have roughly $60 million to spend on upgrading the roster. With needs on all three levels of the defense and offensive line general manager Dave Ziegler has his work cut out for himself.

This week on Just Pod Baby, host Evan Groat discusses three positions of need that should be prioritized among others, as well as possible free agent targets.
