The 31-year-old Hudson has been with the Raiders since 2015 after spending his first year with the Chiefs. He made the Pro Bowl in 2016, 2017 and 2019. He’s played at least 13 games every year of his career except 2012, at least 15 games every year but two.

Fantasy slant: Rodney Hudson was the one constant for an injury-riddled Raiders’ offensive line last year. Hudson finished the year as the 10th highest-graded center in run blocking per PFF. Despite Hudson sitting at age 31, he’ll be a hot commodity on the free-agent market for teams searching for offensive line help. – Derek Brown
