Raiders Still Have High Hopes For Gareon Conley Next Season
Because of legal matters and a mysterious injury, Gareon Conley’s rookie season was one to forget.
There were also questions about Conley’s dedication and attitude toward the end of the season but as talent goes, a source said Conley was “by far” the Raiders best looking rookie in the offseason.
”[Conley] is the real deal. He just needs to get on the field. Wait ‘til you see him at full strength next year. He’s going to be exciting”
Looking ahead, David Amerson and Sean Smith are strong candidates to be released by the Raiders and T.J. Carrie, who played surprisingly well this season, is about to enter free agency.
What that means is the Raiders desperately need Conley to be who they thought he was when they drafted him. Judging by the way he looked in limited action (and apparently in the offseason), he might end up being worth the wait.
