Raiders rumors: Tyler Wilson to be released, per report
The Oakland Raiders released rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson on Sunday, according to Pro Football Talk. The team selected him in the fourth round this spring but watched him struggle in a crowded competition throughout training camp and preseason.
For Wilson, this is a major fall from grace. The quarterback had first-round hype entering his senior year at the University of Arkansas, but his uneven performance contributed to a disappointing season for the Razorbacks.
The 24-year-old still boasts name recognition and pedigree, so he probably won't last long on waivers and it's still possible the Raiders try to stash him on the practice squad. For now, they'll go with Terrelle Pryor, Matt Flynn and McGloin on the roster. Pryor will be the Week 1 starter after outplaying Flynn in the preseason.
