Safety Stevie Brown was waived Tuesday just three days after being promoted to the 53-man roster and making a big special teams tackle in a 16-14 win over the St. Louis Rams.
Also waived was Jonathan Holland, who was on injured reserve and is now free to sign with another team.
If Brown clears waivers, he’ll likely be back on the practice squad.
No word yet on who will be signed to take Brown’s spot, but the locker of offensive lineman Erik Pears was still intact Monday even though he was waived prior to the Rams game.
Cutting Brown likely means the Raiders believe Hiram Eugene, out with a hamstring injury against St. Louis, will be able to face Arizona.
