Raiders Signing S Damarious Randall


Josina Anderson reports that the Raiders are signing S Damarious Randall to a one-year contract on Thursday.

According to Ian Rapoport, Randall receives a one-year contract worth up to $3.25 million. 

Randall reportedly had interest from the Raiders, Seahawks and Redskins at the start of free agency, but it appears as though Las Vegas proved to be his best option in the end. 

Earlier in the day, the Raiders’ agreement with CB Eli Apple fell through, which may have lead to the team shifting focus to signing Randall, who has experience at both safety and cornerback. 

Randall, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his rookie contract when the Browns acquired him from the Packers in 2018 for QB DeShone Kizer.

The Browns picked up his fifth-year option which cost them $9.1 million for the 2019 season. 

In 2019, Randall appeared in 11 games for the Browns and recorded 61 total tackles, three tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, no interceptions and six pass defenses. 

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.

Randall is a solid signing for the Raiders. This gives them ridiculous depth at safety. They have Jonathon Abram, LaMarcus Joyner, Jeff Heath, and Randall. It will be interesting to see how they use Joyner and Randall who both came into the league as CB’s. I could see a package where they come out with one true full time CB in Mullen, and have Randall and Joyner line up as CB’s. Have Jeff Heath play in the box as a sort of 3rd LB, and have Abram as a single high safety. Basically a play on the 3-3-5 defense.
