Raiders will not receive draft pick compensation as Titans cut Tyree Gillespie

·1 min read

Thus far this preseason, the Raiders have sent a couple of players to other teams in trade, with the compensation consisting of a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2024 draft. That condition is usually the player making that team’s regular season roster. One of those players will not meet that condition.

Former fourth-round pick safety Tyree Gillespie will reportedly be among the cuts from the Titans, thus the Raiders will not receive that seventh-round draft pick they had hoped to receive.

It was two weeks ago the Raiders sent Gillespie to Tennessee, so, in the end, it was like the Raiders just cut Gillespie early.

It’s an early dismissal in general for a guy who was selected in the fourth round of the draft. You don’t expect two teams to give up on him after just a year in the league.

That could just mean the Raiders reached for him in much the same way they reached for Alex Leatherwood in the first round of the same draft.
