Oakland Raiders Rumors: Raiders waive Tyler Wilson

The Raiders had four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster, but less than 24 hours after the final roster deadline, they're now down to three.

Tyler Wilson, Oakland's fourth-round draft pick out of Arkansas, becomes the highest current pick to be waived.

Wilson fell behind the undrafted Matt McGloin during the preseason, and the Raiders clearly decided to cut their losses early.

It's highly unlikely that Wilson will clear waivers - he still has interesting potential, but the Raiders felt they were better off sticking with McGloin as their third quarterback.

Wilson will keep his $450,900 signing bonus, and the team that picks him up off waivers will have to pay him the minimum salaries for 2013-2016.
