Jerry McDonald of ANG Newsgroup, is reporting that Schweigert has been notified of his release.
Stuart Schweigert, a four-year veteran who served as the poster boy for the Raiders’ tackling woes, is looking for a new employer.
Schweigert was informed of his release Thursday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported two sources confirmed.
Schweigert sat out last week’s OTA media session Thursday with what coach Lane Kiffin called a leg injury. Schweigert lost his job to Hiram Eugene last year, and the Raiders signed safety Gibril Wilson in the offseason and have moved Michael Huff to Schweigert’s old position of free safety.
In other unrelated news, but bad news for the Raiders. Arthur Blank gave Matt Ryan, the #3 pick, more than this years, and last years #1 picks.
Ryan became the second top draft choice to sign when he accepted a six-year, $72 million contract that included $34.75 million in guarantees. Less than a week before the draft, tackle Jake Long signed a five-year, $57.75 million deal with the Miami Dolphins
What will this mean for McFaddens price.
