The Oakland Raiders roster has undergone a complete overhaul this offseason, particularly on the offensive side of the ball.
Quarterback Derek Carr has his work cut out for him this offseason as he has four new wide receivers in Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams, J.J. Nelson and Ryan Grant, a new tight end in Luke Willson and a new running back in Isaiah Crowell to integrate into the offense.
The only skill position players that caught 10 or more passes that were still on the roster were running back Jalen Richard and wide receiver Seth Roberts, although it appears that list just got trimmed in half. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the team has decided to release Roberts to save around $4 million in cap space:

Roberts was one of the longest-tenured Raiders as he spent the last five years with the team after signed as an undrafted free agent. In 62 total games, he caught 158 balls for 1,826 yards and 13 touchdowns.
He is coming off a career season in terms of yardage, hauling in 43 receptions for 494 yards and two touchdowns so the 28-year-old can certainly be of use to a team in 2019.
In addition to Roberts, Jordy Nelson, Jared Cook and Marshawn Lynch are among the key contributors from a year ago that are not expected back in Oakland in 2019.
