LaMarr Woodley says Raiders are a playoff team

LaMarr Woodley is used to being on winning teams thanks to his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but now he will be trying to return to the playoffs with a different team after signing with the Oakland Raiders during the offseason.

Unfortunately for Woodley, the Raiders have one of the worst rosters in the league, but that hasn’t stopped him from thinking that the Raiders are a playoff team.

“I can definitely see [us] as a playoff team,” linebacker LaMarr Woodley told 95.7 The Game.

“Last year going back and watching some film on the Raiders, there were a lot of opportunities here where they just didn’t close it out.  Some games good in the first half; they just didn’t close it out at the end of the game.  So now we just have to learn how to close out games and it’ll be more wins than losses.”

Unfortunately for Woodley, the Raiders have one of the toughest schedules in the league and they will have a hard time making the postseason — especially considering the fact that they are in a division with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs.

Maybe one day the Raiders will return to the postseason, but that doesn’t appear to be likely anytime soon.
