Raiders Release Three

One year after making him the third highest safety in the NFL, the Oakland Raiders have released Gibril Wilson. The Raiders also released defensive end Kalimba Edwards and wide receiver Ronald Curry.
The Raiders had no explanation as to why Wilson was cut, but after signing Nnamdi Asomugha and Shane Lechler to big deals, the team needed to do something to create more salary cap-space. Of all the money the Raiders threw at players last offseason, Wilson appeared to be the one that had some level of success. He finished second on the team with 129 tackles to go with two interceptions and 1.5 sacks.
Wilson’s deal was for six years and worth up to $39 million with $16 million in guarantees.
