The Raiders have released veterans Javon Walker and Greg Ellis, NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports.
Walker signed a six-year, $55 million contract in 2008, but the receiver never could get healthy while in Oakland. In his first season with the Raiders, Walker appeared in just eight games, starting seven, with 15 catches for 196 yards and one touchdown. Last season, he was held without a catch for the first time in his career, appearing in just three games while dealing with knee and hamstring injuries.
Ellis, a defensive end, was brought in to Oakland before last season after spending his first 11 seasons in Dallas. He finished with seven sacks while starting 14 games.
The Raiders now have released three veterans in the last three days, including RB Justin Fargas over the weekend.
