Raiders roster cuts 2014

Levi Damien

This thread will have all the information on the Raiders roster cuts and will be updated as more cuts are reported and become official.

The first round of roster cuts are due Tuesday and could happen at any time for the Raiders. Those cuts will bring the team down from the 90-man roster to the mandatory 75 players heading into the final preseason game.

In preparation for the cuts to begin, let's start with my 53-man roster prediction

QB

Matt Schaub, Derek Carr, Matt McGloin

RB

Maurice Jones-Drew, Darren McFadden, Latavius Murray, Marcel Reece, Jamize Olawale

WR

James Jones, Rod Streater, Denarius Moore, Andre Holmes, Brice Butler

TE

Mychal Rivera, Brian Leonhardt, *Waiver wire

OL

Donald Penn, Menelik Watson, Austin Howard, Khalif Barnes, Stefen Wisniewski, Gabe Jackson, Matt McCants, Kevin Boothe

DL

Justin Tuck, Lamarr Woodley, Antonio Smith, Pat Sims, Justin Ellis, Shelby Harris, C.J. Wilson, Stacy McGee

LB

Khalil Mack, Sio Moore, Nick Roach, Miles Burris, Kaluka Maiava, Kaelin Burnett

CB

Tarell Brown, Carlos Rogers, Chimdi Chekwa, T.J. Carrie, Keith McGill, Taiwan Jones, Neiko Thorpe

S

Tyvon Branch, Charles Woodson, Usama Young, *Waiver wire

*I am predicting the Raiders will look to the free agent waiver wire to fill this roster spot.
