The Las Vegas Raiders trimmed their roster down to the NFL limit of 53 players on August 30th. While there were many expected cuts, there were also a few surprises. First, Las Vegas is trading cornerback Trayvon Mullen to Arizona in exchange for a conditional 2023 seventh-round pick. The conditional pick could become a sixth-round selection based on Mullen’s playing time.

The Raiders selected Mullen in the second round of the 2019 draft. He emerged as a starter as a rookie, appearing in all 16 games with ten starts. He started all 16 games in 2020, recording a pair of interceptions and 14 passes defended. But a series of injuries left Mullen sidelined for much of the 2021 season. He appeared in only five games, recording one interception and four passes defended. With his injury, Mullen was largely unable to practice during the offseason program and training camp.

 

In a less surprising move, the Raiders released former 1st round pick, Alex Leatherwood.

Head coach Josh McDaniels and General Manager Dave Ziegler were not with the Raiders when the franchise drafted the offensive lineman at No. 17 overall in 2021. But the two men decided to move on from last year’s first-round pick with this week’s roster cuts, waiving him after efforts to trade him failed.

Leatherwood has since been claimed by the Bears, where he’ll get a fresh start. McDaniels wished the offensive lineman the best when asked about the decision to cut him on Wednesday.

We’ve talked about competition since we came here in every position group and trying to give every player an opportunity to earn his job, and to earn his role — whatever role that may be,” McDaniels said in his press conference. “Some are bigger than others. And we felt like we did that. We gave everybody an opportunity to go out there and play and really perform. So there’s a lot of tough decisions that you make across the roster. You hope you get them all right. We’re not perfect at that. So, hopefully, we did the best we could for our team, and we tried to make the decisions we thought would help us going forward.

“So, wish Alex nothing but the best. He did everything he could here to try to earn his role here.
