The 1990s were a tumultuous era. Kurt Cobain and the gloomy "Grunge" movement took hold of the airwaves. The Raiders earned only three trips to the playoffs during the decade. They opened the '90s in Los Angeles under the coaching of Hall of Fame Raider Art Shell with a 12-4 record and division title. The Silver and Black finished the decade back in Oakland, under the fierce, football genius of "Chucky," Jon Gruden. There were more highs and lows than a rollercoaster ride.

The parameters are simple. The player you select had to play in at least one regular season game from 1990 to 1999. Also, indicate which player at the same or equivalent position you would release to make room on the current 53-man roster?
We'll be posting the results and some of your reasons why next week. Please articulate your selections and reasoning in the comments below.
