After 12 years with the Raiders’, 11 as their everyday long snapper, Jon Condo’s time in Oakland is done. The 36-year-old veteran said Wednesday he was informed by the team they will not be bringing him back.
“Earlier today my agent informed me that I will no longer be an Oakland Raider,” Condo said in a message on twitter.
“Words can’t express the gratitude I have for the Davis family,” Condo continued. “They believed in me for 12 years and it was an honor to represent the Raider shield on and off the field. I will always value the meaning of ‘commitment to excellence’ and ingrain these characteristics in my children.
“Many thanks to all the fans for making my time in the Silver & Black memorable. We shared many great moments that I will cherish forever.
“Raider Nation, you are the BEST! Thank you.”
The move to not bring Condo back was not unexpected. He signed a one-year deal last offseason, presumably to finish his career the same time as Sebastian Janikowski, who was told last month that he would not be re-signed after 18 years in Oakland. I put he and Janikowski as a ‘Let ‘em walk’ among the Raiders free agent priorities for this reason.
