Raiders Rumors: Adams, Robinson, Jones
The Raiders have new leadership in general manager Tom Telesco and head coach Antonio Pierce. While that amount of change has a tendency to lead to a rebuild, all signs are pointing towards Las Vegas doing everything it can to compete moving forward. That includes retaining great players like wide receiver Davante Adams, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
We knew that Adams’ former teammate Aaron Rodgers was making efforts to recruit the three-time All-Pro wide receiver to New York. It appears, though, that the Raiders have no intention of allowing any of their best players to walk and have every desire to retain Adams in 2024.
In other news for Adams, the NFL has informed the star wideout that they will not be levying disciplinary action against him for the postgame incident in 2022 that saw him shove a photographer in Kansas City, according to Tom
Pelissero of NFL Network. Originally, Adams faced an assault charge for his actions, but the charges would eventually be dropped. Now, having avoided any legal action, Adams is safe from league disciplinary action, as well.
Here are a couple other rumors coming out of Vegas:
Raiders practice squad defensive end Janarius Robinson may have seen the end of his tenure in Las Vegas. The third-year player out of Florida State was arrested on the Strip earlier this week under suspicion of DUI, per Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. After being drafted in the fourth round in 2021 by the Vikings, Robinson found himself on their practice squad before eventually joining the Eagles in his second year. After not seeing the field in his first two years due to injury, Robinson finally debuted in 2023 for the
Raiders. He appeared in six games, making two starts, and earned his first NFL sack this year. After finally working his way on to the field, though, he faces an uphill battle to find his way back after this week’s arrestHill’s associate at the Review-Journal, Vincent Bonsignore, delivered a report about a week ago that Raiders vice president of football operations and assistant to
the head coach Tom Jones is no longer with the organization. Jones has been with the franchise for 25 years but is now expected to go to Tennessee to join the staff of new Titans head coach Brian Callahan.
