Cole, 29, made 187 receptions for 2,691 yards and 13 touchdowns in his five seasons in Jacksonville.

The team also released center Hroniss Grasu, safety Matthias Farley, cornerback Darius Phillips and defensive tackle Kyle Peko.

The Raiders waived offensive guard Alex Bars, linebacker Curtis Bolton, cornerback Isiah “Ike” Brown, cornerback Bryce Cosby, safety Qwynnterrio Cole, tight end Cole Fotheringham, quarterback Chase Garbers, offensive guard Jordan Meredith, offensive tackle Bamidele Olaseni, receiver Dillon Stoner, defensive end Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa, defensive end Zach VanValkenburg, running back Austin Walter and receiver Isaiah Zuber.

They placed tight end Jacob Hollister on injured reserve.

They traded cornerback Trayvon Mullen Jr. to the Cardinals.
