The rest of the AFC should be worried about the Las Vegas Raiders offense.
Derek Carr will remain their starting quarterback for a while after signing a three-year, $121.5 million extension.
The team also brought in running back Brandon Bolden from the New England Patriots and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson from the Kansas City Chiefs.
But Davante Adams‘ reunion with his Fresno State teammate should scare other teams.
His presence will elevate Las Vegas’ offense, and head coach Josh McDaniels will create plays to maximize the All-Pro wideout.
Carr’s targets don’t end there because Darren Waller is also a threat in the passing game.
He’s an important asset and Carr isn’t letting him go anywhere.

Pro Football Focus shared that Carr said, “Lol no chance” regarding trade talks for Waller.
Moving away from the former Georgia Tech standout doesn’t make sense because he has been a steady contributor for the past three seasons.
In 2021, his production dipped to 665 yards and two touchdowns.
However, he only played 11 games.
When he’s healthy, Waller is one of the best in his position.
He had 1,196 yards and nine touchdowns in 2020 and 1,145 yards the year before.
McDaniels Will Make Waller His X-Factor
McDaniels could revive that package in Las Vegas with Waller and Foster Moreau.
Waller will also get open because Adams could attract multiple defenders.
When that happens, Waller will have a favorable matchup that he will win more often than not because of his size and his steady hands.
If the Chiefs have Travis Kelce, the Raiders would like their rivals to taste the own medicine with Waller.
