ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have terminated the contract of safety Nate Allen.
Oakland cut ties with Allen on Tuesday, less than one year after signing him as a free agent. Allen's $4.9 million salary for 2016 would have been guaranteed if he was on the roster Wednesday.
The 28-year-old Allen played just five games this season because of a pair of knee injuries. His departure leaves Oakland looking to fill both safety spots with Charles Woodson having already announced his retirement.
