Raiders release WR Roberts after 5 seasons

The Oakland Raiders released wide receiver Seth Roberts, the team announced Thursday.

The move comes a day after the team signed wide receiver Ryan Grant.

The Raiders have revamped their wide receiver depth chart this offseason. Oakland added Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and Grant and released Jordy Nelson and Roberts.

Nelson retired from the NFL last week.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr thanked his now former teammate on Instagram.

Roberts, 28, was scheduled to be paid a base salary of $4.45 million in 2019. The Raiders saved $4.65 million on their salary cap by releasing him.

Roberts had 45 receptions for 494 yards and two touchdowns last season, his fifth with the Raiders.

He has 158 receptions for 1,826 yards and 13 touchdowns in 62 games, including 25 starts.
