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.

    Doesn’t mean it’s right? There r very specific outlines for what it actually is. Because people misinterpret it due to lack of knowledge doesn’t make it right. I agree many people have chosen to interpret it in many different ways. Can’t stop that. But that doesn’t make it right. It just makes them ignorant and ill informed.

    Like which undrafted rookie makes the practice squad? Good news, you’re in heaven.

    Oh totally I agree. You hear Presidential Candidates constantly speak on what they will change but they rarely speak on their solution for changing it.

    Fact is…if they give a solution the public won’t like, that will sway votes so they keep everything close to the vest and just give rah rah speeches for a year. Then we see what they’re really made of when elected and by then its too late.

  • RAY NJ

    And Trump should be in a nut house.

  • 24

    Yup

  • 24

    He’s almost there…it’s called The White House lol

  • Rifflicks

    passion isn’t enough ….it requires an effort to inform yourself and refraining from knee jerk reactions and the subsequent willingness to accept half assed quick solutions that usually make problems worse

  • Oak R8rs33.01

    Idiot should just stop talking. He’s working his way right out of the league. Good riddens.

  • RAY NJ

    LOL! We need a Mulligan on this election.

  • inonewordraider

    He said trump says openly racist things, hes not a fan of either, many arent

  • R8RCatDave

    No he is an Ineducated half black man from unr

  • will respond to this in a bit. gotta run for a min. good convo.

  • Oak R8rs33.01

    Haha. Ok. I’m probably logging off for a while as well.

    I feel like we could really do without this 4th pre season game and just get to the real deal but in hindsight…McGloin, Cook and the game could use the work. It’s the only time they get to play anything close to real football.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Agreed komrad.

    People make the worst humans…

  • BigTed707

    According to this Blog, the 2016 season is already a washout after a 1-2 preseason record.
    We may as well skip the regular season altogether and jump right to our high first round selection.
    *Sarcasm*

  • Rifflicks

    Fact is…..that would be true if over 90% of eligible voters could find the polls every election….unfortunately they only need to persuade 40 – 60 % ….and of those the majority of each half are uninformed single issue voters…..so issues aren’t the real problems facing candidates anymore

  • 24

    Haha…Fire everyone…draft another QB and Long Snapper NOW!!!

  • MEX_GHOST

    New post, slooooow guuuuys!!

  • Raider 8

    the only “racist” thing i’ve heard trump say is that he didn’t think he’d get a fair shake from a mexican judge…which was bad…but i don’t see how it’s racist to want to enforce actual laws on immigration or racist cuz he doesn’t want to allow a free flood of millions of immigrants without being fully vetted.

  • Rifflicks

    what fact? you’re a broken record repeating the talking points you learned to be cool

  • nah, just well researched and knowledgeable of what’s happening within our society.

  • ah man. ok. nm. we’ll pick it back up at a later time i suppose. cheers dude.

  • Rifflicks

    JUST “PROVE IT” BABY

  • ah yes, the classic Riff post when he’s in over his head but can’t admit he’s wrong. laugh and insult. you poor dim witted fool.

  • Rifflicks

    wrong again
    my classic post is this…….don’t argue with a Moron…..they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience
    so… you’re dismissed

  • inonewordraider

    You must be deaf

  • probably why people have slowly stopped arguing with you. I enjoy it. your ignorance is always entertaining.

    Plus the fixes are never simple and often counter-intuitive or otherwise unpopular on the surface. So they BS and then, if they’re good, they’ll break their promises and do what’s actually best. At least on the national level where the issues are so complex. On the local level it’s usually easier to understand the issues.

  • Chris in NY

    I could not care less either way about Kap or his political feelings. I just ignore it. Still, it’s annoying to see the constant bombardment and discussion over silly issues like this.
