Raiders save money by cutting OT Harris, FB Griffith

The Oakland Raiders continued trimming the fat from their roster Monday by waiving OT Kwame Harris and FB Justin Griffith.

Together, the two moves will save the Raiders more than $8.3 million against the salary cap.

Harris was scheduled to count for $8.798 million against the cap, and his only acceleration will be close to $1.6 million. His departure will save the Raiders $7.2 million against the salary cap. Harris was another 2008 free-agent signing who failed to work out in Oakland.

Griffith will save the Raiders another $1.1 million against the salary cap, as his $1.1 million base salary is wiped off Oakland’s books, with a mere $333,334 being accelerated.

These are the Raiders’ moves today. Another likely is ahead with WR Javon Walker.
