Oakalnd Raiders Roster Cuts: 12 Players Released To Get To 75

The Oakland Raiders have made the moves they needed Monday to move the roster down to 75 players before the NFL deadline, according to the Raiders's official site.

Oakland has made moves to release several players. Those players include linebacker Korey Bosworth, defensive ends Mason Brodine and Wayne Dorsey, safeties Aaron Henry and Chaz Powell, cornerback Terrail Lambert, wide receivers Thomas Mayo and DeAundre Muhammad, quarterback Kyle Newhall-Caballero and fullback Manase Tonga. Oakland also cut two players who have been out due to injuries in fullback Rashawn Jackson and lineman Ed Wang.

The Monday limit mandates that only 75 players be on the roster from whatever original number there were to begin the weekend. It stays that way until the end of the preseason. After that, the league mandates that on Friday the 75-man roster must be trimmed down to the final 53-man unit. The Raiders have one more exhibition game against the Seahawks, at which point they'll have to decide who stays, who gets cut, and who gets sent to the practice squad.

The Raiders open the season Sept. 10 as the second billing on Monday Night Football at home against the San Diego Chargers.
