Maxx Crosby fans the flames of Tyrann Mathieu in Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Raiders have made some splashy moves this offseason. Maxx Crosby hints that he wants them to do at least one more.

The Raiders’ prized passer took to Twitter to share interesting facts about nature, especially on the colors of the majestic badger. It is also the nickname of free agent All-Pro Cornerback Tyrann Mathieu. What a coincidence, right?

“Fun fact of the day…Honey Badgers are silver and black,” the Raiders Pro Bowler said on Twitter.

The Las Vegas Raiders have already locked down an All-Pro addition on defensive end Chandler Jones. Adding a three-time All-Pro cornerback to Tyrann Matthieu would turn their already promising defense into a ground-changing force that opposing offenses will think about weeks in advance.

Maxx Crosby locked himself in with the Raiders long-term after signing a four-year, $99 million extension earlier this month. With the addition of another All-Pro talent in Davante Adams joining Pro Bowl tight end Darren Waller catching passes from Derek Carr, the offense also looks terrific.

The Raiders are building something in Las Vegas. Maxx Crosby clearly thinks all they have to do now is add a honey badger to coat the silver and black alongside her.
