The Raiders have released veteran QB Jeff Garcia, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora.
After signing with Oakland in the offseason to back up JaMarcus Russell, Garcia played sparingly in the preseason. He completed 15 of 27 passes for 141 yards and one touchdown.
The 11th-year veteran has played for the Buccaneers (2007-08), Eagles (2006), Lions (2005), Browns (2004) and 49ers (1999-2003). He has started 116 games and thrown for 25,537 yards and 161 touchdowns with 83 interceptions.
With Garcia gone, the Raiders have Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye behind Russell.
Among the other notable cuts were LB Morlon Greenwood, CB Justin Miller, DT Terdell Sands and RB Gary Russell.
