Curtis Lofton is officially a free agent again. This time he won’t be signing a big-money contract.
Lofton was officially released by the Raiders today, after playing one year of a three-year, $18 million contract. As it turned out, Lofton played one year and made $6.5 million in Oakland.
In Lofton’s previous foray in free agency, he signed a five-year, $27.5 million contract with the Saints in 2012. He was cut three years into that deal.
The 29-year-old Lofton has never missed a game in his NFL career and started nine of his 16 games last year. But he didn’t have a great season and will surely have to take less money on his next contract than he’s made on his last two contracts.
