Raiders cut Michael Bennett

The Raiders made a minor roster move Monday.

They cut veteran running back Michael Bennett and signed safety Matt Giordano. He was in camp with the team.

The Raiders are deep at running back and keeping Bennett was seen as a luxury. With safety Mike Mitchell still injured, the Raiders need depth at safety. Tight end Kevin Boss remains injured. So, there will be questions of whether he can play in next Monday night's season opener at Denver.
