The Las Vegas Raiders have no interest in trading one of the best tight ends in the NFL.

Per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, there's "zero chance" that Waller is going to get dealt. This comes after there were rumors that the Packers and Raiders were engaged in trade talks surrounding Waller.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr also echoed that sentiment on Monday night.

Waller had another stellar year with the Raiders even though he was banged up for parts of it. He finished the 2021 season with 665 yards and two touchdowns off 55 receptions.

That comes after he had back-to-back 1,100-yard seasons as he also had 12 combined touchdowns during that time.

The NFL world is relieved that Waller will be staying in Las Vegas.

The Raiders are set to have a dynamic offense in 2022. In addition to having Waller, they'll also have Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow at wide receiver, plus Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake in the backfield.

It'll also be led by new head coach Josh McDaniels after he was hired away from the Patriots.
