Ultimately ranking 10th among the NFL in total tackles in 2023, Spillane was a defensive force in his first season with the Raiders after spending the previous four years as a part-time player in Pittsburgh. Such improvements could make Spillane a contract-extension candidate, but his current deal already runs through 2024, so expect the 28-year-old veteran to once again occupy the starting role at middle linebacker this upcoming season.
Spillane registered six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Colts.
