"We certainly wish Derrick Johnson the best."— Oakland Raiders (@Raiders) October 16, 2018
Coach Gruden has announced we are parting ways with LB Derrick Johnson and are calling LB Jason Cabinda up to the active roster.
Johnson, 35, is still the all-time leading tackler for the Chiefs franchise. His production fell off during the 2017 season, and he was released in February after 13 seasons with the team. The Raiders signed him in May.
Johnson started the season opener for the Raiders, but he has not started since then. He recorded only 14 solo tackles for the team — three of them in the 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in London on Sunday.
Johnson was selected by the Chiefs in the first round (15th overall) of the 2005 NFL draft.
