Position: Offensive lineman
Stats: 16 starts
Overview: Offensive lineman Austin Howard was brought over to the Raiders largely due to his experience with then-offensive line coach Tony Sparano. Howard was brought over to be a key piece of the offensive line, holding down the right guard spot but he wasn’t as advertised for much of the season. Howard struggled to find consistency, often finding himself pushed back in pass blocking and not opening up holes for a struggling run game. Howard just got a big contract, so the Raiders will have to hope he finds a way to turn it around.
2015 Roster Status (according to Spotrac.com): Signed, $6,400,000
