Raiders release G Mike Brisiel
APR 01, 2014 5:57p ET
The team announced the move on Tuesday to cut ties with general manager Reggie McKenzie's first major signing back in 2012.
Brisiel signed a $20 million, five-year contract with Oakland two years ago before taking a pay cut last March. He struggled as he was hampered by an ankle injury most of his first season and then was not an ideal fit when Oakland switched from a zone-blocking scheme to a power scheme last year.
