Raiders Release Right Tackle Marshall Newhouse

The Raiders will search for a new starting offensive lineman after releasing right tackle Marshall Newhouse Monday afternoon, Matt Schneidman of Bayareanewsgroup reports.

Newhouse started all 14 games he played in for Oakland last season and was shaky on an otherwise sturdy offensive line. At this year’s NFL Combine, Jon Gruden expressed his desire for improvement on Newhouse’s side of the unit.

“We had some inconsistency at right tackle, obviously,” Gruden said. “Newhouse, he had some moments where he played well. He had some moments where he obviously struggled.”

Newhouse was due a $1.55 million base salary and a $200,000 workout bonus in 2018. No dead money against the cap accompanies his release. Newhouse’s release is the second of the day that gives Oakland more cap space. The Raiders also cut cornerback Sean Smith, who was due $8.25 million in base salary and $250,000 in a workout bonus.
