Raiders to cut James Jones

The Oakland Raiders are cutting veteran wide receiver James Jones. Jones led the team with 73 catches last year. The Raiders have signed Michael Crabtree and drafted Amari Cooper, making Jones expendable. The Oakland Raiders are planning to release wide receiver James Jones, who led the team in receptions in 2014, after finding two new starting receivers in April. The Raiders signed Jones to a three-year, $10 million deal last year. The Raiders will save about $3.4 million in cap space by cutting Jones. The Raiders are also cutting middle linebacker Miles Burris and offensive guard Kevin Boothe. Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
