Davis released, Sulak reportedly waived


Safety Keith Davis, signed as a reserve safety and special teams player during the offseason, was released according to the transactions page on Raiders.com

In a more surprising development, Profootballtalk.com reports the Raiders have waived defensive end Stryker Sulak, a sixth-round draft pick out of Missouri.

When Sulak was drafted, Raiders coach Tom Cable said the plan was to play him as a strongside linebacker along with fourth-round pick Slade Norris.

However, during the mandatory minicamp and OTAs, Sulak was instead lined up exclusviely as a defensive end and was getting reps with the second and third teams.
