Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
One of their former free agent answers needed just two years to become obsolete, as the Raiders released guard Mike Brisiel.
The Raiders announced they had released Brisiel, according to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com.
With this year’s acquisition of Austin Howard to play right guard, they didn’t need him, so getting the $3.85 million off the books was of more benefit to them.
At least until they change directions again.
