The Raiders waived linebacker Travis Goethel and cornerback Coye Francies as they positioned themselves to kick off training camp with the players they envision having a realistic shot of making the 53-man, opening-day roster.
Neither move registers as much of a shock, given both failed to make much of an impact during their time on the active roster.
Goethel will be remembered most for his difficulty snapping the ball in the regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers after he replaced injured regular Jon Condo.
He spent most of his time recovering from various injuries and searching for a way on the field in any capacity. Goethel was a sixth-round draft pick in 2010 out of Arizona State.
