The Oakland Raiders have released tight end Ben Troupe, a league source tells us.
Last month, the Raiders placed Troupe on injured reserve with a foot injury. 
A player may be released from injured reserve if the player is healthy, but the player also can file a grievance as to the question of whether he truly is healthy.
Troupe will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.
He was a second-round pick of the Titans in 2004, and he signed with the Raiders earlier this year.

    troupe was a monster at UF, but never really showed the same spark in the NFL. Too bad….

    If you’ve never heard of Ben Troupe then you’re a newb to the NFL.

    He was released, but probably received an injury settlement.
    Too bad the fans couldn’t release Al Davis!!

    I am curious to see how the accelerated bonus money Al paid to all these guys he just signed and is now cutting is going to effect their salary cap in the coming years…

    Boron obviously lives for the Raiders, wingnut, he’s just too dumb to know it.
    The douchebag jumps on every post involving the Raiders with his moronic comments.
