According to the Las Vegas Journal-Review, writer Michael Gehike believes the Oakland Raiders will attempt to sign pending free agent Tyrell Williams. The Raiders are a wide receiver needy team.

Williams is believed to be one of the top wide receivers available in the free agent market. He just turned 27-years-old in February.

With Williams being one of the top wide reviews on the market — as long as he doesn’t re-sign with the Los Angeles Chargers before reaching the open market on March 13th — it would not be surprising if he reached an agreement worth more than $10 million per season. This type of salary would limit potential teams to sign him, as he would likely be targeted by teams with the most cap space.

Besides Williams, the Raiders have also been linked to Pittsburgh Steelers wife receiver Antonio Brown. Oakland — like any other team in the Brown sweepstakes — could only pry him free via a trade.

It could potentially take a high draft pick to acquire Brown. Either a first-round draft pick or a second-round pick.

The Raiders traded away their former top receiver Amari Cooper in a deal with the Dallas Cowboys in October. The Cowboys paid the Raiders a 2019 first-round draft pick to acquire Cooper.

Oakland — who can opt-out of Derek Carr’s contract this offseason — would make a commitment to Carr being their quarterback of the future by making these potential moves.
