The Las Vegas Raiders have slowly been letting some players go over the last week so that can get the roster to 80 players. After about a week of training camp, the team has apparently seen enough and let go of seven players on Monday. The team announced that they are waiving defensive back Jordan Brown, tight end Paul Butler, kicker Dominik Eberle, center Erik Magnuson, long snapper Liam McCullough and wide receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams.
The most notable name who was let go is linebacker Marquel Lee, who was released because of a failed physical. Lee started 19 games over three seasons for the Raiders but has had a very hard time staying healthy. It might be best for him to take a year off to get fully healthy.
Two undrafted free agent rookies were let go in Eberle and McCullough. It was thought there could be a chance that Eberle puts some pressure on Daniel Carlson after his disappointing season. With roster space limited, it looks like the Raiders are going to give Carlson one more shot at the job. Trent Sieg is a solid long snapper for the team so it was always a long shot that McCullough was going to make the team.
