The Raiders will be the first team to fully open training camp when their veterans report to work on Wednesday, but safety Dallin Leavitt won’t be joining them.

Leavitt confirmed that he’s been released on his Instagram page. He signed a restricted free agent tender with the team earlier this offseason that set him up to make $2.433 million this season, but the salary was not guaranteed.

Leavitt appeared in 42 games for the Raiders over the last four seasons. The majority of his playing time came on special teams, but he did make one start last season.

Leavitt recorded 56 tackles and two fumble recoveries while with the team.

  1. Wishing Mr. Leavitt the best of luck.

    Still don’t know how he lasted sooo long; must’ve really had high marks from ST coaches.

  2. He lasted so long because John Abram kept getting injured and was a real liability in coverage. I like Dallin don’t get me wrong he may evolve into a starting caliber player somewhere else.
