Two days after signing free agent long snapper Jacob Bobenmoyer to a three-year, $3.815 million deal, the Raiders have cut long snapper Trent Sieg, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

New Raiders special teams coordinator Tom McMahon is familiar with Bobenmoyer, with the two working together in Denver.

Sieg, 27, was with the Raiders for five seasons. He signed a three-year extension with the team during the 2021 offseason and was scheduled to make $1.080 million in the final year of his deal.

Sieg entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2018, signing with the Ravens. The Ravens waived him out of the preseason, and he signed with the Raiders two weeks later.

He has played 80 games, missing only one game the past four seasons, and Sieg has made five tackles. He made two tackles in 17 games last season.

  1. Some real stellar moves from the Vegas clown show this off-season. Who needs tackles and guards and pass rushers and linebackers and corners when you’ve locked up the new long snapper for three years.

  2. The Raiders give me a headache, 50 years of being a fan they never let me down Always doing the opposite of what makes any sense.

  3. I really think we aren’t as smart or we just can’t see what the pros see! I hear the label tossed around so much as far as J. MacDaniels is concerned, ” bright mind.” Who are these people? Darren Waller for a 3rd round pick? Tank this season and go get Caleb Williams out of USC. D. Carr’s problem is that he didn’t run when he needed to. I don’t see what Jimmy G is going to do for us?

  4. say what you want about patrick mahomes, but the truth is, it was the signing of James Winchester that had made the chiefs a prolific playoff contender.
    anyone who doesn’t know the importance of the long snapper, just doesn’t know football.

  5. We had a Pro Bowl kicker and punter last season. Long snapper is a vital component of the kicking operation, which has been among the best in the NFL. What do the Patriots clowns do? Switch out the long snapper for no apparent reason.

  6. McDaniel’s now works to destroy one thing that worked last year Carlson, Seig and Cole. McD’s motto is if it works good I can fix it.

  7. Real head scratcher here with this swap but as far as Carr vs. Jimmy G, defenses knew exactly where Carr would settle in the pocket. Rarely did he move around and Carrs performances dropped as soon as the weather did. Chilly temps under 35 degrees and Carrs performance levels dropped with the temps !!!
