In a move that is most likely to make room for the incoming signing of safety Taylor Mays, undrafted rookie tight end Gabe Holmes has been released by the Raiders. This according to Yahoo! Sports.

Holmes went undrafted out of Purdue and was the fourth tight end on the team. With the rash of injuries in the first game, namely to the safety position, his roster spot was one of those which was very much in question.

The 6-5, 260-pound tight end impressed the team in camp enough to have them keep four tight ends. With his release they hope to re-sign him to the practice squad.
