Raiders Release Veteran LB Jelani Jenkins

The Raiders are releasing veteran LB Jelani Jenkins on Saturday, according to Michael Gehlken.

Jenkins, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.632 million rookie contract and signed on with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent back in March.

In 2016, Jenkins appeared in nine games and recorded 29 tackles, no sacks and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 87 linebacker out of 87 qualifying players.
