Per Vincent Bonsignore with Vegas Nation, head coach Antonio Pierce said the release had to do with “off the field” behavior:
“Whatever you do off the field, affects the decisions that are going to be made in this building. And we’re gonna do our best to protect the brand, the shield, and the Raiders organization.”
