Almost two years ago to the day, the Raiders signed WR Javon Walker to a six-year, $55 million contract much to the amusement of the rest of the league.
Today they cut Walker, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
That’s $16 million guaranteed for one touchdown over two seasons.
The Raiders also released DE Greg Ellis just nine months after signing him to a three year contract.
Ellis started off hot in Oakland producing three sacks in his first two games but fizzled out ending the season with just five sacks.
That’s nine years worth of contracts for $65 million that resulted in 15 receptions and five sacks.
