Source: Carl Nassib, Raiders agree to terms, improving edge depth

The Raiders love Maxx Crosby’s work off one edge and believe Clelin Ferrell will get better off the other. There was no doubt, however, that the Silver and Black need a deeper rotation.

Enter Carl Nassib, a big and agile edge rusher who will compete for snaps this preseason. The 6-foot-7, 275-pound former Tampa Bay Buccaneer agreed to terms with the Raiders on Tuesday, a league source said. The Bay Area News Group's Jerry McDonald first broke the news.

Nassib has 12.5 sacks split almost evenly over his last two seasons. He had 36 total pressures in 2019 over 389 snaps in pass defense. The 26-year-old also is capable of working as a stand-up rusher if asked.

Analytics site Pro Football Focus grades Nassib as a solid edge setter and run defender, vital skills for any end playing in defensive coordinator Paul Guenther’s scheme.

The Raiders should probably add another rotational pass rusher to the group, with Josh Mauro a free agent and Arden Key set to return from injury following two underwhelming seasons when healthy. It would make sense to grab one in the draft and develop him with a young and promising defensive line.

Raiders begin UNLV turf installation to play on at Allegiant Stadium

Two weeks after the Raiders’ natural grass turf was laid out, it’s UNLV football’s turn to get in on the action at Allegiant Stadium.

Crews on Tuesday began installing the artificial turf UNLV will play its home games on inside of the $2 billion, 65,000-seat stadium.

Photos show crews got the installation of the turf underway in the north end of the stadium. The turf is being installed in sections and already has field lines painted on the surface.

UNLV is slated to play six home games at Allegiant Stadium. The Rebels and the Raiders worked out a deal for UNLV’s Oct. 24 game versus Colorado State to be moved to Oct. 23 to have the Sept. 12 game versus Arizona State be played at Allegiant, as opposed to Sam Boyd Stadium.
