The man who once opted not to stand for the National Anthem has been given his walking papers in Oakland.
According to Steve Corkran of the Bay Area News Group, the Raiders have cut defensive tackle Tommy Kelly.
The move frees up roughly $5 million in cap space, and it marks the departure of the longest-tenured Raider who doesn’t kick the ball on a regular basis.
Kelly is the third of the team’s top three defensive tackles to exit Oakland this offseason, joining Richard Seymour and Desmond Bryant. They’ll be replaced in part by Vance Walker and Pat Sims, both of whom were signed in free agency.
