One of the Raiders biggest needs entering the 2018 offseason is improving the talent at defensive tackle. Even after extending Justin Ellis to a three year contract worth more than $15 million, the Silver and Black should look to add another quality interior defensive lineman as they haven’t had a dominant player at the position since Richard Seymour.
One player the Raiders could have added to fill this void was former Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson. That idea crashed and burned when ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reported Wilkerson agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers. It was later confirmed to be a one year contract worth $5 million plus $3 million in incentives according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Wilkerson may have been the prized defensive lineman that free agency had to offer, but there are plenty of other options for the Raiders.
