Sunday the Seattle Seahawks opened the 2021 season with a 28-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Then on Monday the Las Vegas Raiders opened their season with an absolutely bonkers Week 1 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens.
However, in the course of playing the Ravens, the Raiders lost starting guard Denzelle Good to a knee injury that will keep him out for the remainder of the season. In order to address their sudden lack of depth on the interior of the offensive line, Las Vegas looked to the Seattle practice squad.
The Raiders were already without starting guard Richie Incognito prior to Good's injury, and poaching Simmons puts him back where he was before landing with the Seahawks. Originally signing with the then Oakland Raiders out of USC, Simmons was waived at the end of training camp in 2018, only to be claimed by Seattle where he wound up filling a key depth role in recent seasons.
