After Week 2’s devastating collapse to the Arizona Cardinals, the Las Vegas Raiders needed to add some pieces to the war chest and they did just that Wednesday.

The Raiders traded for New England Patriots offensive tackle Justin Herron Wednesday, sending back a 2024 sixth-round pick. Vegas will also receive a seventh round pick in 2024 from New England.

The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Field Yates Wednesday morning. An official announcement is expected by the team later this afternoon.

Herron was a 2020 sixth-round pick in New England who has started 10 of the 28 games he’s played in the NFL. Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels and offensive line coach Carmen Bricillo both know Herron from their time in New England after working with him the last two years. Raiders General Manager Dave Ziegler worked in the Patriots personnel department when Herron joined the team.

The third-year tackle out of Wake Forest has played on both sides of the line but will likely compete for the right tackle spot with Kolton Miller locked in to QB Derek Carr’s blindside.

Herron, 26, is on a rookie-scale contract until after the 2023 season, a bargain as the Raiders are desperate for help on their offensive line.
