The Oakland Raiders have to dump a lot of salary cap this offseason to meet requirements of the new cap. And they're going to have to get rid of a lot of players if they plan on meeting things.
Jason La Canfora of NFL.com has the latest report that has the Raiders parting ways with their starting tight end.
Boss caught only 28 passes with the Raiders last year, down from 35 catches in 2010 and 42 catches in 2009 with the Giants. So his production has been down in his newest spot, so it's not the biggest cap casualty the Raiders would have had to deal with. Boss has been underutilized in Oakland, and it makes sense to move on from him.
Could Boss end up back with the Giants, who are now in need of a tight end? It's quite possible.
