Raiders Release DT Tommy Kelly

Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Oakland Raiders will part ways with DT Tommy Kelly on Wednesday.

La Canfora expects Kelly to draw interest “pretty quickly.”

Releasing Kelly will free up $4.8 million in cap space for the Raiders. He signed a seven-year deal worth $50.125 million back in 2008, but has two years remaining on that contract. Kelly would have made $6.5 million this season and another $7 million in 2014.

Kelly, 32, graded out as the No. 74 defensive tackle in league, according to Pro Football Focus.
