  Raiders | Tyrell Williams could be let go    Sat Jan 16, 10:17 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams may be a cap casualty this season because the team would save $11.6 million in salary cap space if they release him.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Things haven't gone the way the Raiders planned since they picked Williams up. Injury or ineffectiveness (miscast as their no.1 receiver a year ago) have plagued his time with the Raiders. They have a nice collection of young WR talent like Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards to move forward with.

  Raiders | Trey Quinn scooped by Vegas    Tue Jan 12, 06:21 PM

Free-agent WR Trey Quinn (Jaguars) was signed to a Reserve/Future contract by the Las Vegas Raiders Tuesday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick out of SMU in the 2018 NFL draft, Quinn didn't do much for the Jaguars in 2020. He did catch 26 passes in 2019 for Washington, starting six games as their slot receiver. He'll try to latch on with the Raiders now in a similar role.
