Raiders Release Veteran DT Dan Williams

The Oakland Raiders officially released veteran DT Dan Williams on Tuesday.

Williams, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract with Arizona before signing a four-year, $25 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in 2015.

Williams was set to make a base salary of $4.35 million for the 2017 season.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Williams will free up $4.5 million of available cap space while creating no dead money.

In 2016, Williams appeared in all 16 games for the Raiders and recorded 17 tackles, a half sack and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 44 interior defensive lineman out of 127 qualifying players.
