The Raiders released 2020 third-round pick Tanner Muse and signed 32-year old former Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright in the days leading up to the start of the season, which should give you some idea of the direction in which the team is heading. The Raiders roster is still a mashup of players who impressed Jon Gruden on Monday Night Football four-to-seven years ago and Mike Mayock draft guestimates. Gruden kept Derek Carr and most of the starters under wraps in the preseason, so it’s hard to determine if the Raiders have improved or backslid this year. Chances are they will end up as the same old Gruden Raiders: just talented and competent enough to provide an entertaining weekend for the opponent’s road-tripping fans.  -- Mike Tanier
