Raiders announce roster cuts

The Oakland Raiders announced their final roster cuts Saturday in order to get down to 53-man roster

In order to reach the 53-man limit, the Raiders waived the following players.

  • RB George Atkinson III
  • G Mitch Bell
  • RB Michael Dyer
  • LB Spencer Hadley
  • DE Shelby Harris
  • T Dan Kistler
  • TE Brian Leonhardt
  • DT Ricky Lumpkin
  • S Tevin McDonald
  • DT Leon Orr
  • K Giorgio Tavecchio
  • DE Max Valles
  • DE Gary Wilkins
  • WR Devon Wylie

The Raiders also released the following players: 

  • WR Kris Durham
  • S Taylor Mays
  • QB Christian Ponder
  • DL CJ Wilson

In addition, tackle Anthone Morris was waived/injured while safety Brandian Ross was places on the resered/injured list.

This certainly doesn't mean the Raiders have finalized their roster, as Reggie McKenzie will more than likely take a look at other teams' cuts to find some free agent help that could benefit the team.
