The Oakland Raiders have reached their final 53-man roster, with plenty of tough decisions seen throughout. Below is a list of the cuts.
There weren’t many surprises, but perhaps receiver Greg Little was one of them. His struggles this preseason made this decision pretty easy though. The Oakland Raiders had hoped he’d make a big impact, but alas, that will not happen.
George Atkinson III was also a surprise, though perhaps we could see this coming considering the competition in front of him with the likes of Darren McFadden, Maurice Jones-Drew, and Latavius Murray. No doubt the Oakland Raiders would like to try and stash him on the practice squad.
