Nick Kwiatkoski is one of the players to watch on the Raiders’ defensive unit. After a productive final season with the Chicago Bears, Kwiatkoski is ready to better his previous performance with his new team. We’re glad to have him, and he’s glad to give everything as a result of signing a three-year, $21 million contract during the offseason.
The Chicago Bears drafted Kwiatkoski in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In order to get the right to draft him, the Bears had to give up their fourth and sixth-round picks to the Los Angeles Rams for them to move up on the draft board. In four seasons in Chicago, Kwiatkoski recorded 184 tackles, 6 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 8 pass deflections, and 1 interception. Because of all this, it’s easy to say that he plays a big part in the Raiders’ defensive lineup.
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the 27-year-old Kwiatkoski attended High School at Bethel Park High where he played football as both a wide receiver and safety. Despite missing the first two months of his senior season, he still received an invitation to play in the Chesapeake Bowl.

Nick’s Past Charities
While in Chicago Nick got involved with several charities to make the lives of children better. For three years in a row he held the Nick Kwiatkoski Care For Real Toy Drive in conjunction with Target and Amazon. Through this he helped provide children Christmas gifts. Also, partnering with a teammate for two years, they had a goal to provide running shoes to kids whose lives were affected by homelessness and gun violence. Welcome to Las Vegas, Nick. We appreciate your generous spirit.
