Lessons from the Oakland Raiders’ final roster cuts, first depth chart, and practice squad which were released this week.
The Oakland Raiders released their first official depth chart as they prepare to play the New Orleans Saints on September 11th.
Before the release of the depth chart, Oakland cut their roster from 75-men to 53-men earlier this week.
Players cut include:
Guard Mitch Bell
Wide receiver K.J. Brent
Wide receiver Marvin Hall
Defensive lineman Drew Iddings
Defensive tackle Derrick Lott
Tight end Jake McGee
Tight end Ryan O’Malley
Linebacker Kyrie Wilson
The most notable name on the list is Neiko Thorpe. The corner had signed a second-round tender this free agency, but agreed to a pay-cut to stay with the team.
Added, Greg Townsend Jr. and George Atkinson III are Raiders’ legacies who did not make the cut. Read along to see which of these cuts made the practice squad.
Otherwise, here is what we know about the Raiders after the roster cuts and updated depth chart.
