Raiders Sign Willie Snead

The Raiders have agreed to sign Willie Snead (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter). The free agent wide receiver visited Las Vegas earlier this week and landed his deal soon after.

The Raiders will add Snead to their new-look WR group, one without Tyrell Williams and Nelson Agholor. Snead will join John Brown and the newly re-signed Zay Jones, but the Raiders will likely continue to scour the market and the draft for more receivers.

The Ravens didn’t show much interest in re-signing Snead. He spent the past three years in Baltimore, but his role has dwindled somewhat over the last two. The former UDFA kicked off his Ravens tenure with 62 grabs for 651 yards and a touchdown in 2018. But, between 2019 and 2020, he has a combined 64 catches and 771 yards. On the other hand, he does have eight touchdowns between the two seasons.

    “The Raiders will continue to scour the market and draft for more receivers”.
    A reminder of the mistake they made taking Henry Ruggs as the first WR in last year’s draft instead of Jeudy or Lamb (not to mention a number of other guys who outperformed him: Jefferson Aiyuk, Higgins, and Claypool)

      Gruden admit a mistake? Never! Lol.

      You’re 100% correct though. I wanted them to draft Lamb. Tons of other great candidates, too. Instead they took Ruggs, who doesn’t fit what they do.

    You guys are so off on this. Ruggs is going to be amazing. He flashed as good as anyone. With a full offseason this guy is going to be lights out.

      I liked Jefferson and Lamb too. I just think the Ruggs Edwards combo will be strong and the new signings are good complements

      Golden, you are spot on! No one else has the speed Ruggs does and having had a year to learn the playbook I think he’ll be that guy every other team wishes they had.

    A little early to write off someone as talented as Ruggs, especially after a bizarre rookie season during the Covid nonsense
