Where are they now…?

With the regular season behind us, the Oakland Raiders face some tough offseason decisions ahead of them. How did they do last season with tough decisions?

Let’s take a look at where some of our former Raiders played their 2015 season.

Linebacker Sio Moore, Indianapolis Colts
The Raider fan favorite only made 12 appearances and finished the season with four tackles.

Receiver Brice Butler, Dallas Cowboys
Butler really only made two significant appearances for the Cowboys. The Raiders easily replaced him with Seth Roberts who scored in five of the team’s wins.

Safety Tyvon Branch, Kansas Chiefs
Branch killed the Raiders by returning a turnover for a touchdown versus his former team. Branch played well considering he could not stay healthy for the Raiders the last two seasons.

Defensive Edge Lamar Woodley, Arizona Cardinals
Woodley only played ten games and spent most of the season injured, again.

Running Back Darren McFadden, Dallas Cowboys
McFadden was once the Raiders franchise player. He only made 10 starts for the Cowboys after a slew of injuries put him atop the depth chart. McFadden finished the season with more than 1,000 rushing yards and 1,400 yards from scrimmage. Fresh legs and a decent offensive line helped him succeed. Defensive Tackle Pat Simms, Cincinnati Bengals
simms was a role player on a deep Bengals interior defensive line.

Defensive Tackle Antonio Smith, Denver Broncos 

Smith made his presence felt despite not starting a game for the Super Bowl Champions. He made a crucial sack in the playoffs.
