The Raiders needed to move on from a few players after signing LB Brandon Marshall, OL Erik Magnuson, LB Will Compton, and DT Terrell McClain when Tuesday’s trade deadline ended.
To fit those new signings on the roster, the team has waived former ‘Hard Knocks’ star Dakota Allen and released DE Kasim Edebali and DT Corey Liuget. All three were inactive for the Raiders this past Sunday.
Allen is now the second ‘Last Chance U’ star to be signed and subsequently released by the Raiders this year, following in Ronald Ollie’s footsteps. The former 7th-rounder was signed of the Rams’ practice in late September, and played sparingly for the Silver and Black on special teams. After signing a pair of linebackers, Allen was an obvious candidate to be released.
Edebali has been a true journeyman during his time in the NFL, as he’s played for nine different teams since entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College. This stint in Oakland was the shortest of his career, as he lasted only eight days as a Raider.
Liuget was signed in late August, and played in three games for the Raiders, collecting three total tackles, one tackle for loss and one quarterback hit. The former No. 18 overall pick played his entire career with the Chargers before coming to Oakland, and his release may spell the end of a productive career.
