According to, per a league source, Oakland has cut 39-year-old journeyman Jeff Garcia.

Garcia has not been too impressive this preseason, ailing from a calf injury that tainted his season last year in Tampa Bay.

This cut is evidence that sloppy play will not be tolerated, even if you have good experience.

Garcia's job this offseason was to push JaMarcus Russell to be better. The Raiders must feel as though his work here is done.

Garcia has been very vocal to the media about his feeling that he gives Oakland the best chance of winning right now. Apparently, the coaches disagree.

The move means that Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye have likely landed roster spots in Oakland for the year.

I think it's a good move, one that is truly based on this offseason performance, which is what it should be about right now in Oakland.
