Raiders part ways with veteran OT Penn

Raiders part ways with veteran OT Penn



The Oakland Raiders released veteran left tackle Donald Penn in what was called a mutual decision Saturday.

Penn, who turns 36 next month, indicated that he wants to return for a 13th NFL season elsewhere in 2019.

"Looking forward to the next chapter of my career -- I've got a lot of football left!" the three-time Pro Bowl selection posted on Twitter.

Penn missed 12 games with a groin injury in 2018 and was slated to count $7.2 million against Oakland's salary cap this season.

He became expendable when the Raiders signed former New England Patriots tackle Trent Brown to a four-year, $66 million contract last week.

Undrafted out of Utah State in 2006, Penn played 178 games (174 starts) with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2007-13) and Raiders (2014-18).

"Donald will always be a Raider and his presence will be missed by the entire Raiders family," Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement. "I wish the absolute best for Donald in his family."
