He was destined to be a member of the NFL’s all-name team. Now if that is going to happen then it won’t be in silver and black.
The Raiders have severed ties with sixth round selection Stryker Sulak, a defensive end from Missouri.
News of the release has been reported by numerous outlets including Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. Florio takes the Ed Werder approach to reporting by attempting to create a story from nothing.
So, basically, the Raiders have cut Sulak before his rookie training camp. Said the source, “I’ve never seen that happen before.”
The reason for the Raiders’ decision to cut Sulak isn’t known. Yet.
Suddenly the Raider franchise is in a free fall now that the 199th pick in 2009 draft has been released before rookie camp. Al Davis has locked all players out of the facility. Tom Cable is holding Darrius Heyward-Bey hostage, Mario Henderson wants a new contract and Keith Davis has been released. (Ok, so only the last one actually happened)
Gasp! The horror!
This is bizarre indeed that the Raiders would release a rookie defensive end after signing a veteran one, Greg Ellis, just over a month ago.
No matter the case, the fact is that Raider Nation is losing the chance to chant the name “Stryker” in proud unison on Sundays. I hope Sulak finds his way to the octagon where his name is meant to be seen in lights.
