Raiders' Karl Joseph starting rookie season in reserves
Oakland Raiders rookie strong safety Karl Joseph is opening the year on the bench.
Nate Allen will start opposite Reggie Nelson against the Saints. "I didn’t expect anything given to me," Joseph said. "I’ve just got to keep learning, keep getting better and keep growing as a player and everything else will fall in its place." The Raiders should still find snaps for the 14th overall pick on defense in time.
Our algorithms projected Joseph for 76.47 tackles, 6.84 passes defended, and 2.28 interceptions in 2016 prior to this news.
