New, comments
Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

The first roster cuts for the Raiders have been announced. Here are the players who officially let go today:


P  Steven Clark
CB  Rob Daniel (UDFA)
QB  Cody Fajardo (UDFA)
WR  Josh Harper (UDFA)
OG  Lamar Mady
RB  Trent Richardson
WR  Kenbrell Thompkins
WR  Milton Williams III (UDFA)

Released the following players:

CB  James Dockery
CB  Ras-I Dowling
WR/KR  Trindon Holliday

Waived/Injured the following player:

S Jimmy Hall (UDFA)

Placed the following player on Reserve/Injured:

OT  Menelik Watson (Achilles)

The team had previously announced they had waived S Jonathan Dowling and OG Quinterrius Eatmon. That puts the Raiders roster at the maximum 75 players.

The next cutdown will be the final cuts for the 53-man roster. The deadline for those cuts are September 6.

Expect  the Raiders to be looking to add players who have either been cut from other teams or who will be among the final cuts.
