ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders are keeping four quarterbacks and two punters on their 53-man roster with rookies Tyler Wilson and Matt McGloin both making the team as backup passers and the team putting off its decision on picking a punter.
The Raiders announced cuts Saturday to get down to the regular-season roster limit of 53 players with the surprising cut being defensive end Andre Carter. The 34-year-old Carter is one of the team's only proven pass rushers with 78½ career sacks.
Oakland also is keeping two punters for now with both Marquette King and Chris Kluwe surviving the cut. But there still could be additional moves made before the season starts Sept. 8 in Indianapolis.
