The Raiders have apparently reduced their glut of quarterbacks and punters by waiving fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson and releasing punter Chris Kluwe.
The Raiders have not announced any transactions, but are expected to do so later Sunday. Profootballtalk.com reported Wilson would be waived, and Kluwe congratulated Marquette King on his Twitter account on winning the punting job.
Wilson performed well in offseason, non-contact workouts but was outperformed by Matt McGloin, an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. He becomes the second member of the draft class to be waived, along with seventh-round selection David Bass.
Bass was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Bears. Wilson, if he were to unclaimed, could be added to the Raiders practice squad. The Raiders paid Wilson a $491,000 signing bonus.
