The Raiders also created cap room by releasing quarterback AJ McCarron. The veteran pass-catcher finished with 739 yards, the second-lowest total of his career as a starter, and found the end zone just three times.
"Normally, when you hand out a bonus for next year's season, there's a pretty good chance those guys are coming back", Gruden said December 28. The Pittsburgh Steelers traded wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders.
Williams signed a deal worth $47 million with $22 million guaranteed, a source told Schefter.
"In a ideal world, I would have played a couple more years in Green Bay", Nelson told ESPN Milwaukee.
That was part of the contract that McCarron signed with the Buffalo Bills in free agency previous year.
Had McCarron been on the Raiders' roster on Friday, he would have received a $1.9 million bonus, and $1.1 million of his $3 million base salary for the 2019 season would have become guaranteed, too.
