REPORT Raiders expected to sign DE Josh Mauro
He now joins the Raiders, who will play their final season in Oakland this year before moving to Las Vegas.
Both backup quarterback A.J. McCarron and wide receiver Jordy Nelson were both cut on Thursday, bringing some cap relief for a team that has been spending a lot of money in recent days. Nelson was largely overlooked last season after a slow start, but would rebound with 38 catches over the last five weeks of 2018, third most in the National Football League over that time.
The Raiders will pay $7.5 million for nine home games (they have a "home" game scheduled for London), along with $750,000 in parking arrears, for 2019. From Weeks 6-10, Nelson caught only five passes for 36 yards.
Nelson wasn't an ideal complement to newcomers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams (think quick slot type), so just add that $3.6 million to that $52.1 million guaranteed.
He would have seen his base salary of $3 million for 2019 become fully guaranteed on Sunday, and he had a salary-cap number of more than $5.368 million. In addition to Nelson, veteran wideout Seth Roberts also could be shown the door by the Raiders, who are in full rebuild mode when it comes to the roster.
Nelson spent one year with the club after joining ahead of the 2018 campaign and appeared in 15 contests and made 14 starts.
