The Raiders have announced that they have released seven players and put two others on injured reserve to get down to the mandated 80 player roster limit today.
The team waived FB Bryson Kelly, OL Ben Lamaak, WR Damola Adeniji, WR Steve Goulet, S Josh Bullocks, DT Derrick Hill, and OL Lou Eliades
They also placed OL Alan Pelc and LB Travis Goethel on Injured Reserve.
None of these cuts come as a surprise.
The next cutdown date is scheduled for Septeber 3.

Gurode would be nice. He could play center and move satele to right guard, or gurode at right guard and satele at center. Carlisle can be a backup.
We need to bring Andre Gurode in for a look. Satele is to incosistant at best. Gurode would be an instant upgrade at Center and would really hope Wiz Jnr at Left Guard. I am still pissed we never tried to sign Harvey Dahl. Dahl is a bully and exactly what jackson wanted for the OL.
Only recognize a couple of names- and practice squad material in there Levi? Any names out there that we may look at?
@nilbymouth Satele played very well the latter part of last season and Hue really likes him. Called him out specifically last week for being a team leader. Satele is the center this season and he should be fine.
@DylanAlexander Adeniji was on the practice squad last year so it is possible he could go back. As for free agents, I didn't see anything on the waiver wire worth taking a look at. They will have to wait until the final cuts and even then could simply go with what they have. Even though middle linebacker has no one behind McClain.
