Gruden: Players are 'dying to play' for Raiders

The Raiders will release pass rusher Bruce Irvin, reports The Athletic's Vic Tafur.

This was supposed to be a nice send off for the Raiders, who will open up their stadium in Las Vegas for the 2020 season.

The move continues the trend of the Raiders parting ways with talented players this season. He's accounted for three of the Raiders' seven sacks, leading the team.

Mack, Irvin's former teammate, cryptically tweeted as the news broke in what seemed to be a response to Irvin's release.

Irvin thanked the Raiders organization for his time in Oakland. Safety Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie abruptly retired Tuesday after his snaps were cut.

Gruden was asked Friday about Irvin's diminished role. I'm frustrated. We'll try to solve that as soon as possible.

"Well, last night, we weren't in our nickel defense very much", Gruden said. Gruden said they would get Khalil Mack to sign on the dotted line, and deliver a championship to the City before the team moved. So in the base defence, sometimes he doesn't fit the role that we need done. "I know it's not looking pretty right now". "He's an edge rusher, and we haven't had the lead a lot". We haven't had the opposition behind in the chains a lot. His role has been reduced.

Why Chicago? I've got three good reasons I'll fire your way. The loss brings the Raiders to a 1-7 record, almost writing their way out of the entire playoff picture altogether. Irvin's 11 forced fumbles since the start of the 2016 season are the most in the National Football League in that span.

"I mean, at the end of the day, we've both got to step up", Irvin added, "so it is what it is".
