Raiders | Darrius Heyward-Bey, others cut

Tue, 12 Mar 2013 16:59:05 -0700

The Oakland Raiders released WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, CB Michael Huff and DE Dave Tollefson Tuesday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: DHB never emerged as the deep threat that Oakland thought he could be after drafting him as a first-round pick. Mediocrity at the quarterback position probably didn't help. Heyward-Bey could still have fantasy value as a No. 4 or 5 WR depending on where he lands.

Wed, 11 Apr 2012 10:07:41 -0700

Oakland Raiders DL Dave Tollefson said he feels indebted to the team for giving him an opportunity to play in the league. Tollefson spent time on the team's practice squad in 2007.

"There's a debt there that I feel like I never really got to repay after leaving. It's kind of funny how life works. You get an opportunity to come back to someplace like this and really show them that you appreciate the opportunity that they gave you."

Giants | Have interest in bringing back Dave Tollefson

Tue, 28 Feb 2012 20:51:37 -0800

The New York Giants have an interest in bringing back impending free-agent DL Dave Tollefson, but they have to let him test the free-agent market first. That's because Tollefson played last year under a "minimum salary benefit deal" - a one-year contract for the veteran minimum that counts for less against a team's salary cap. Those deals, according to the rules laid out in the Collective Bargaining Agreement, may not be extended or renegotiated.
