Patrick Graham was supposed to have the role of defensive coordinator in the Giants, however, there was a reversal of the situation, and he ended up in the Las Vegas Raiders. There are many good players in Las Vegas with whom he will cooperate, which he is aware of.
It was an invitation he could not refuse “I didn’t watch their defense per se during the season, but some of the things that stood out to me. So when Josh gave me an opportunity to possibly come here, I was definitely excited about it,” Graham said, as quoted by nbcsports “There’s a lot of good players to work with and really excited about doing that”.
The biggest reason he seems to have decided on this move seems to be his former teammate Josh McDaniels who is currently the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders.
Patrick Graham respects McDaniels
Patrick Graham has huge respect for McDaniels who is a great coach and used to be a great player.
This duo should do great things, because, given the experience and the quality they have, they could raise the club to a higher level. Las Vegas has a pretty good roster, they have everything you need for long ranges. “As always, you try to make the best decision for your family and for your professional career,” Graham said.
“It just so happened to be with someone I knew from the past. [I have] a lot of respect for Josh, in terms of respecting his football mind." "All the yards that he’s gained on me — me being a young coordinator, having gone against him a few times, all the yards he’s gained on us and when he beat us.
So, I’m just really excited for this organization”. It will certainly be interesting to see how this duo will do the job
