Oakland Roster Trim Begins

And then there were 75 men left standing.

The Oakland Raiders have parted ways with five players to get down to the league mandated total of 75.

Among those released are center Jonathan Campos, wide receivers Shawn Bayes and Will Franklin, defensive tackle Joe Cohen and offensive lineman Marcus Johnson.

The next wave of cuts will be this Saturday as another 22 Raiders will be released in order to get down to the opening day total of 53.

Also, Nnamdi Asomugha will see a specialist for the bone chip in his wrist, an injury sustained in the first half of the “embarrassing” loss to the New Orleans Saints.
