By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Las Vegas Raiders have released wide receiver Tyrell Williams. He was a member of the team for two seasons.

He missed the entire 2020 season with a shoulder injury. The Raiders are saving $10.6 million with this move.

Two years ago, he signed a four-year, $44.3 million deal with the Raiders. This is not a surprising move, as Williams had no guaranteed money left on his deal.

As a result of his release, the Raiders are responsible for a $1 million dead cap hit.

Being that Williams is released before the start of the new league year on March 17th, he’ll be able to garner interest of teams now. He will now have to wait to sign with a new team.

Williams has played five seasons in the NFL. He played two seasons with the San Diego Chargers and then two seasons after the team relocated to Los Angeles, California.

He also spent one season with the Raiders in 2019.
During his lone season with the team on the field, he was on a first half tear.

The wide receiver then struggled in the second half with a plantar fasciitis injury.

In 2019, Williams made 14 appearances, including 12 starts. He had 42 receptions for 651 yards and six touchdowns.
