    Not my favorite of the FA safety class - but may be one of the better pure center fielder types available.

    Solid player.

    Fair question for sure.

    Joyner played slot and then moved to Free. I think they will get another guy for the Kelce role.

    I’m assuming Joyner means no Leveon but it means maybe Golden or Zadarius Smith.

    I like this move. He can play the pass very well. Put him in the slot vs those little guys and he has the quicks to keep up. He is small which sucks to pair with Kujo, but it should only be a problem when they are matched up with size. Gotta scheme that weakness out of the defensive gameplan.


    Josh Allen has size and coverage skills tho. I know we'd rather have him rush the passer, but he could help stop big TE's or large slot guys.

    Or Jordan Hicks who can cover from the LB spot

    4 years 42 million.

    Not sure on G money.

    Safeties make bank now.

    Just the way it is.

    May or may not pan out, but at least there's going to be one less bum on our roster. I like it.

    Safe to say the Landon Collins deal inflated what they are getting

    Nothing new, Raiders always HAVE to overpay everybody to sign with them. There's no other incentive for players to join a badly run organization for nearly 20 years.

    Sucks that we passed on Derwin James...a FAR superior Safety that would have cost a LOT less. We just keep throwing stupid money to try to fix our brutal mistakes last offseason. Dumb teams stay shitty teams.

    And still being run like a bad organization. A horrific 2018 draft is directly responsible for two desperation signings with outlandish contracts.

    Lets see how the draft goes. You can overpay some guys in FA as long as you build your nucleus through the draft.

    10 mil a year is good price for joyner. Esp since most of it will be on the back end and not guaranteed. Young. Biggest issue is height. If he was 5 inches taller he'd be a monster. But he has good range and speed

    Erik Harris is 6'3 230 - so we have a bigger safety. We could also just play Joyner at NCB. He is perfect there.


    The bigger safety prospects like Mike Bell, Tell III, Hansen & D.Thompson look more appealing now tho. Greedy Williams is another big DB who could be sitting around 24-35, just saying. Wouldn't mind adding some size back there. Gonna be tough drafting a guy like Bush who is also kinda small. We need some TE coverage somewhere
