Raiders waive linebacker, making room for Wright

Updated September 6, 2021 - 1:59 pm

The Raiders have waived linebacker Tanner Muse, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed on Monday.

The third-round pick out of Clemson missed all of his rookie season with a toe injury last year but began camp as the starting outside linebacker in the Raiders base defense.

The Raiders agreed to terms with veteran linebacker K.J. Wright last week, but have not officially added him to the 53-man roster. Cutting Muse is an indication they may be ready to add Wright to the roster.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
