Offensive tackle Joseph Barksdale has been released by the Oakland Raiders, according to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com. Barksdale, a third-round pick in 2011, was inactive for each of the first three games this season. He joins fellow third-round pick cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke and fourth-round pick defensive back Chimdi Chekwa as players the Raiders have parted ways with from that draft class since new general manager Reggie McKenzie took over.
