Raiders releasing Karl Joesph

USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders are electing to stick with youth in their secondary.

Per Vinny Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the team is releasing veteran safety Karl Joseph.

Joseph was a Raiders first-round pick back in 2016 and spent his first four seasons with the franchise. He played for Cleveland last year, appearing in 14 games with eight starts. He recorded one interception and four passes defensed.

The Raiders re-signed Joseph back in April. But the team drafted Tre’von Moehrig in the second round, and he’s emerged as a starter throughout training camp.

Las Vegas currently also has Jonathan Abram, Tyree Gillespie, Dallin Leavitt, and Roderic Teamer at safety.

  1. To small,slow and tight ends dominate him because he is to short. Looks like we are going to live and die with the young up and coming Bucks. This team just cant build like we did the first go around when Chucky was here…I dont remember who built those teams when Gannon was our QB but we always won and our defense was top 15 that would smack u around..What is holding us back? Mayock or Chucky or Both!

  2. Yeah let’s keep Dallin Leavitt over Karl Joseph. Leavitt absolutely blows. He can’t cover or make a tackle.

    Leavitt isn’t on the team to cover people. Hes an elite gunner. Karl Joseph dsnt play special teams and hes our 4th saftey. A 4th string who dsnt play ST is a waste of a roster spot.
