With roster cuts coming this weekend, the Raiders made a few on Friday, releasing DB Damarious Randall.

Randall and the Raiders agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.25 million back in April. The move was a little surprising, as Randall recently turned 28 years old, so he likely has some solid years left in him. However, it looks as if the club is going towards a younger approach.

Over his first five seasons in the NFL, he’s racked up 285 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 14 interceptions including two returned for touchdowns, 47 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries.

During his last two seasons in Cleveland, Randall started all 26 games he played. However, he missed some time in 2019 while dealing with hamstring injuries. He was also inactive one week because of a coach’s decision.
