After a disappointing 4-12 season in 2012, the Raiders look to copy that of the Indianapolis Colts and make an instant turnaround from one of the worst teams in the NFL to a playoff team in just one offseason.
The Raiders are still over the salary cap in 2013, but are much closer to being able to spend money on big name free agents.
"Personally, I think we're year away from that. We're not in a salary cap situation like last year, but we still have issues and have some decisions that have to be made before free agency, or when free agency starts. So, we're not out of the woods, by any stretch. But, we are better off than last year." said Reggie McKenzie last week courtesy of Paul Gutierrez of CSN California.
With the salary cap still being issue for another year, the Raiders are going to have to rely on draft picks for rebuilding in 2013. With that in mind, let's see what positions the Raiders need to upgrade the most.
