Darius Among the Final Cuts Made by Raiders

The Raiders made their cuts on Saturday to get their rosters down to 53.  The biggest shock of the cuts included safety Donovin Darius, who the team signed after he was released by the Jags this past offseason.  Darius was supposed to bring experience to the Raiders secondary, that was number one last season against the pass.  Darius was a first-round pick in 1998. Also let go were TE O.J. Santiago, DE Josh Shaw, OT Chad Slaughter, and WR Alvis Whitted. The following Raiders were placed on waivers: TE James Adkisson, C Jesse Boone, OG Kevin Boothe, LB Kurt Campbell, DB Marquice Cole, S Eric Frampton, WR Carlos Francis, P/K Tyler Fredrickson, DT Anttaj Hawthorne, WR Chris McFoy, LB Kyle Shotwell, DE Dave Tollefson, and OT Mark Wilson. The Raiders also put running back Michael Bush, a fourth-round selection in 2007, on the non-football injury list.
