The Raiders also released kick returner Justin Miller, safety Jerome Boyd, cornerback Darrick Brown, defensive end Greyson Gunheim, wide receiver Jonathan Holland, tackles Seth Wand and James Marten, linebackers Slade Norris, David Nixon, Morlon Greenwood and Chris O'Neill, fullback Marcel Reece, running back Gary Russell, punter Ricky Schmitt, tight end Darrell Strong, guard Mark Wilson and defensive tackle Ryan Boschetti.

Oakland also placed center John Wade, cornerback Michael Hawkins and safety Rashad Baker on the waived/injured list.
