Hiram Eugene was a hard-hitting safety for the Oakland Raiders. He is now available on the open market along with several former Raiders players as the team tries to get under the salary cap. While a few more are expected, Eugene is the latest to be announced and gives the open market another solid player for the secondary.
Bill Williamson writes, "Defensive tackle John Henderson and linebacker Kamerion Wimbley are both candidates to be cut as well, although Wimbley is open to a new deal to stay. The Raiders will be able to get under the salary cap by Tuesday with the goal of signing some free agents when the open market begins at 4 p.m. ET Saturday."
Eugene played six seasons with the Raiders after entering as an undrafted free agent in 2006 after playing college football at Louisiana Tech University. He had 22 tackles and 2 forced fumbles last season.
