Darren Waller Sees One Drastic Change In The Raiders Offense

Over the last few seasons, Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller has emerged as one of the game’s top talents at his position.

Waller is a physically-gifted passing game factor that has become a dynamic threat, especially in the red zone. However, the Pro Bowler recently stated on the Bussin’ With the Boys podcast that the Raiders didn’t have a game plan for him in red-zone situations under head coach Jon Gruden.

“There was a lot of times in the last couple years where I felt like there wasn’t a clear defined attack in the red zone or like a plan for me specifically,” Waller said, via Heavy.com. “I was kind of like “what the f–k am I doing?’ sometimes.”

The fact that the Raiders didn’t have an exact plan of attack with Waller and he was able to excel at the level he has speaks to his talent and the strong connection he possesses with quarterback Derek Carr.

There should be more of a sense of direction under new head coach Josh McDaniels, who had tremendous success finding the end zone for Rob Gronkowski. The New England Patriots offense had Gronkowski as a staple in the offense, especially in the red zone.

That should only rise another level with star wide receiver Davante Adams in the fold, as he will draw plenty of attention. Adams holds the reputation as being arguably the game’s best talent at his position.

All that spells plenty of opportunities for Waller to become an even more effective target on that part of the field.
