Today the Oakland Raiders released former starting guard Mike Brisiel, according to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com. Brisiel started 30 games over the past two seasons, but was out of a job after the Raiders signed Austin Howard to man right guard.
He signed a five-year, $20 million contract in 2012, but took a pay cut last year after they abandoned the zone blocking scheme he was brought there to be part of. The move creates $1.38 million in cap space, but leaves behind $3.93 million in dead money.
