Report: Raiders Expected to Pursue Rams LB Cory Littleton in Free Agency

Back in January you read about the one player in the free agency the Raiders have no choice but to go after in free agency.

Six weeks later there is a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the Raiders do, in fact, plan to pursue Rams linebacker Cory Littleton if he isn’t re-signed by the Rams before free agency.

“Should he hit the open market, the Raiders will be among a handful of teams vying for his services. The cost will be significant, but he is worth the investment,” Vinny Bonsignore reported on Wednesday.

“Littleton is a priority for the Rams, but they have multiple pending free agents and roughly $15 million in projected cap space. His rapidly increasing price tag will land him between $13 and $14 million in annual salary and $30 to $35 million in guarantees based on the recent contracts given to Jaylon Smith of the Cowboys and Shaq Thompson of the Panthers.”

Bonsignore is an interesting source on Littleton because he has connections with both the Rams and Raiders. If he says the Rams are making Littleton a priority to re-sign, it’s probably the case.

The question is, will the Rams have enough salary cap room to get a deal done competing against a tax-friendly team from the state Nevada?
