The Raiders waived 14 players and placed tight end Gabe Holmes on injured reserve Monday as they trimmed their roster to the league-mandated 75 players. The deadline to do was is Tuesday.
Among the Raiders cuts was tight end Colton Underwood, who shot to fame last week after his video asking Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman on a date went viral.
Defensive tackle Leon Orr may have been the biggest surprise. Last year, defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said he thought Orr could be a “major impact player,” but the writing was on the wall when Orr, who played in three games last season, didn’t see the field Saturday against the Tennessee Titans.
Wide receiver Max McCaffrey, younger brother of Stanford star running back Christian McCaffrey, was also waived.
The remaining cuts are: center Ross Burbank, long snapper Andrew East, safety Chris Edwards, safety Chris Hackett, safety Jimmy Hall, wide receiver Joe Hansley, defensive back Tramain Jacobs, linebacker Lenny Jones, wide receiver Nathan Palmer, kicker Giorgio Tavecchio and guard/center Terran Vaughn.
The Raiders must further reduce their roster to 53 players by Saturday.
