     Raiders this offseason Royce Freeman Jersey , but 2020 was part of the sales pitch that got him to join the club.Marshall grew up in Las Vegas and stayed in Nevada to play college football, which the Raiders used to their advantage when it came time to talk about a contract. The Raiders are set to begin playing their home games in Vegas next year.“They said they only had a one-year deal for me, but they really sold me on Vegas,” Marshall said, via Nicki Jhabvala of “They said, ‘Look, we want you to help us plant the flag in Las Vegas. We feel like you’re a leader, and we need leaders on the defense, we need alphas on the defense.’ That’s what Jon Gruden said, so that kind of made me feel good. It’s funny because when I went there John Elway Jersey , they showed me the whole model of the Vegas stadium. So I was like, ‘OK, this is their selling point for me.’ I’m not sure about everybody else, but for me, they knew, ‘Let’s talk to Brandon about Vegas.’ And it worked.”The prospect of playing well enough to earn another contract and move back to his hometown may have played a role for Marshall, but he admitted there weren’t a lot of other options available to him. Marshall said the Chargers, Cardinals and Jets showed early interest in his services early in free agency, but they pulled back as the Raiders were pressing forward.

MSTShareTweetShareShareVic Fangio discusses team at 2019 NFL Scouting CombineDennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY SportsDenver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio met with the media at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday. He covered a wide variety of topics related to the Broncos offseason strategy. Fangio revealed that Emmanuel Sanders and Derek Wolfe would be back with roles on the team Womens Joe Flacco Jersey , but they expect to let Bradley Roby go ahead and test free agency. “We’re going to see how the free-agent market treats him and we’re going to stay in contact with him,” Fangio said of Roby. “We still have an interest in him, and we’ll see where the process takes us.”He also noted that when evaluating draft prospects tackling is a non-negotiable aspect for his defensive unit in Denver. When it came to the 2019 NFL Draft, Fangio said, “We could use help at all three levels, which is both good and bad. It’s good that it leaves you open in the draft, not tied to one position. And it’s not as good, because you’ve got needs at all three levels. But I think we can shore up those needs rather quickly and hopefully get it going back in the right direction.”With the Broncos reportedly trading for quarterback Joe Flacco at the beginning of the league year, they should be wide open with the 10th overall pick to get the best player available at any position of need.
