Tom McMahon likely didn’t need much convincing to stay within the AFC West and join the Las Vegas Raiders. Not with a stout battery of Daniel Carlson, A.J. Cole III and Trent Sieg at place kicker, punter, and long snapper, respectively. That’s a loaded unit for the longtime special teams coach who heads West from the Denver Broncos to the desert.
That trio aside, however, it’s the Raiders special teams coverage unit that needs to elevate its game. And McMahon must’ve been ecstatic when Las Vegas snared Mack Hollins in free agency. The wide receiver by trade is a stellar gunner who’s adept at running down punts and pinning opponents deep in their own territory.
