The Oakland Raiders have cut their roster down to 80 players. There are no surprises although safety Josh Bullocks was a veteran addition to the team. Here are Oakland’s cuts: Fullback Bryson Kelly, wide receivers Steve Goulet and Damola Adeniji, offensive linemen Ben Lamaak and Lou Eliades, defensive tackle Derrick Hill and Bullocks. Linebacker Travis Goethel and offensive lineman Alan Pelc were officially placed on injured reserve as expected.
In other AFC West nuggets Tuesday afternoon:
In an attempt to drum up ticket sales, the Dolphins are hoping to cash in on Tim Tebows return to Florida in October. Hey, aren’t the Dolphins dissatisfied with their quarterback situation and isn’t Tebow buried in Denver? Hey, we have an idea.
Meanwhile, as Tebow's status in Denver drops, so are the sales of his jersey. The former No.1 jersey seller in the league is now 10th.
New Orleans defensive end Alex Brown announced he has been cut. Denver could use more veterans on the defensive line and new Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen was on the Saints’ staff last season.
Oakland cornerback Chris Johnson has returned to practice after missing a couple of weeks. He will likely start Week 1 at Denver and his return should help Oakland. The Raider have had shaky preseason play at the position.
UPDATE: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting former New England safety James Sanders will visit Kansas City if he doesn’t sign with Atlanta during his current visit there. Sanders played for Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli in New England. Sanders would be part of the Chiefs’ rotation at safety.
