The Raiders three-day Rookie minicamp ended yesterday. Upon completion of such camps, the team doesn't waste any time in adding the players they like from those camp invites. If the number of players they likes outnumber the roster spots available, the team must cut existing players to make room. That seems to be the case with defensive end, Shelby Harris, who tweeted Monday that he is no longer employed by the Raiders.

Harris was a 7th round pick by the Raiders in the 2014 draft out of Illinois State. He became an exclusive rights free agent this offseason and the team placed a tender on him to retain him. He appeared in 8 games over two seasons with no starts, putting up a total of 14 combined tackles and 1.0 sack.
