The Raiders began the process of getting to the 75-man roster limit, with seven releases Sunday.

According to Scott Bair of, the Raiders cut the following players: Tight end Kyle Auffray, offensive tackle Emmett Cleary, linebacker Justin Cole, wide receiver Mike Davis, defensive tackle Torrell Troup, cornerback Jansen Watson and wide receiver Rahsaan Vaughn.

None of the cuts were a surprise, and they’ll have to pare eight more from the roster before Tuesday’s deadline.
