Safety Taylor Mays was released Saturday by the Raiders, per Field Yates of ESPN. Mays was a non-factor in the Oakland secondary with Nate Allen and Charles Woodson playing well in their respective positions. He might be able to catch on with another team looking for depth at that position.
Safety Taylor Mays agreed to a contract with the Raiders on Tuesday. Mays will provide some depth at a position group that saw both starters -- Nate Allen and Charles Woodson -- suffer an injury in Week 1. He will likely fill a reserve role initially, but will have a chance to see some playing time with just two other safeties on the Raiders' roster.
