The 34-year-old bruiser was traded for a 2022 third-round pick, the team announced Thursday. The move reunites Reaves with former Knights coach Gerard Gallant in New York.
The third-year safety finds himself in that all-too-important window when teams often determine a player’s long-term value.
The 30-year-old offensive lineman entered the offseason as a free-agent, but agreed to stay with the Raiders and is a projected starter at guard on the rebuilt unit.
By now he should have solidified himself as one of the best players on the defensive line in the NFL, not fighting to hold onto the starting job.
