Alex Barrett (DE)
Pass Rusher who was waived with an injury. Combined for five tackles in two preseason games for the Raiders. He played two regular season games for the Detroit Lions in 2017 prior to joining the Raiders.
Mack Brown (RB)
Ran well in the preseason (161 yards on 39 carries and 1 TD plus 3 receptions for 16 yards) but was never in contention for a roster spot. Spent 2016 and the start of 2017 with the Redskins then was picked up by the Vikings. Has appeared in 13 regular season games total for his career so far.
Bryson Allen-Williams (LB)
Signed last week and was never likely to make the roster. He did get to play in the final preseason game against the Seahawks, so has some NFL game film to show for his time with the Raiders.
Brandon Barnes (TE)
Mid camp addition to the Raiders to add depth but never had a chance to make the final roster.
James Cowser (DE/LB)
Three year run with the Raiders is over for the edge rusher and special teams player (22 games, 32 tackles over that time period). Likely to end up on another team’s roster as a quality special teams player.
Joshua Holsey (CB)
Hosley struggled in the preseason play (he recorded 1 tackle and 1 pass defended in 3 games) and was cut. Had been with the Redskins for the last two years, recording 2 tackles in 13 games for them).
Makinton Dorleant (DB)
This cornerback/safety was waived with an injury.
Cameron Hunt (OL)
Camp fodder, signed because the Raiders needed an extra center while Jordan Devey worked on playing the guard position.
Jordan Richards (FS)
Richards, a three year player for the Patriots who spent last year with the Falcons, couldn’t work his way up the depth chart and consequently has been cut.
Eddie Vanderdoes (DT)
Third round draft pick from the poor 2017 draft that couldn’t get healthy. The Gruden regime have decided its time to move on.
Luke Wilson (TE)
Veteran TE ( five seasons with the Seahawks and last year with the Lions) was cut in a move that was expected after he saw playing time while the starters and key backups sat. Wilson has 102 career receptions for 1216 yards and 11 touchdowns for his career.
Gabe Wright (DT)
A training camp injury slowed his progress and limited the time he had to work himself into a roster spot. The Raiders signed him late last year and saw some playing time. Wright has spent time with the Lions, Browns, Eagles and Dolphins since being draft in the fourth round in 2015.
Justin Ellis (DT)
The Raiders moved Ellis to injured Reserve, ending his season before it began. Could this be the end of Ellis as a Raider?
Anthony Rush (DT)
Rush, should he get through waivers, is likely headed to the practice squad.
Marcell Atemann (WR)
Atemann is an NFL caliber receiver and is likely to find a home on another team’s roster. With the Raiders, he got lost in the depth of talent added this season in the form of Brown, Williams and Renfrow plus the need to keep Dwayne Harris for special teams.
Keon Hatcher (WR)
A second straight year with him showcasing his talent during the exhibition season but a crowded depth chart meant the hill was to high to climb this year.
Keelan Doss (WR)
One of the darlings of this season’s “Hard Knocks”, and leader during the exhibition season with 17 receptions for 162 yards and a touchdown. All while he learnt the position. His not playing special teams is likely what earnt his cut.
Jason Cabinda (LB)
Solid practice squad performer last year that garnered him a promotion to the 53 man squad late in the season.
Quinton Bell (DE)
Converted WR, he showed some promised but way to raw for the 53 man roster. Maybe the conversion continues on the practice squad?
Te’von Coney (LB)
Notre Dame product signed as an undrafted free agent, he never showed enough to be a threat to make the initial 53 man squad.
Lester Cotton Sr (G)
Played every snap in the final exhibition game against the Seahawks. Another prospect for the Practice Squad?
Koa Farmer (LB)
He best hope is landing on someone’s practice squad to continue his development.
Rico Gafford (WR)
Played quarterback on the scout team and defensive back. At WR, his highlight was the 53 yard touchdown thrown by Mike Glennon.
Denver Kirkland (G)
At one point was considered the likely candidate to start when Gabe Jackson was injured, now he’s been cut.
Dylan Mabin (CB)
In years passed, he might have made the roster but not this year.
Justin Murray (T)
Didn’t show enough to win the swing tackle spot.
Nick Nelson (CB)
2018 4th round draft pick that struggled in camp and on game day.
Kick return workhorse. Has enough tape that he’ll likely get a look by some team.
Tyler Roemer (T)
Showed aggression and a mean streak as an undrafted rookie but isn’t ready for primetime.
Keith Smith (FB)
Missed the start of camp after having minor knee surgery. Looks like undrafted free agent Alec Ingold made the most of that chance that represented.
Ethan Westbrooks (DT)
Too much depth at the position for Ethan to crack a roster spot. He did have a sack against the Seahawks as a highlight for his game film as he seeks new employment.
Kyle Wilber (LB)\
The special teams captain from a year ago. Makes this a surprise cut.
Paul Butler (TE)
Butler will rehab an unknown injury then revert to the Raiders’ injured reserve.
