After his first season with the Raiders in 2019, Incognito signed a two-year deal, moving with the Raiders to Las Vegas. The 37-year old played just two games in 2020 due to injuries. His cap hit for 2021 was $5.475 million.

Joyner was midway through a four-year, $42 million contract he signed in 2019. He started 6 games in 2020, the fewest since 2015. His cap hit for 2021 was $11.2 million.
