Source: Raiders release Warren
The housecleaning in Oakland continues.
After parting ways with wide receiver Javon Walker and defensive end Greg Ellis on Monday, the Raiders were at it again Thursday afternoon as they released defensive tackle Gerard Warren, according to our own Michael Lombardi.
Warren—a nine-year veteran out of Florida—was due a $5.925 million roster bonus on March 14. He started 32 games for the Raiders over the past two years, recording 74 tackles and six sacks.
However, Warren struggled against the run in 2009 and with a big roster bonus coming due, the organization clearly felt it was time to move in another direction.
The 31-year-old was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2001 and spent the first four years of his career there before joining the Denver Broncos for a two-year stint in 2005.
