Why was he released?

Raiders waived DE Bruce Irvin.

Jon Gruden shopped Irvin prior to Tuesday's trade deadline to no avail. It's comical given the current atmosphere of the team, but waiving Irvin was the right call since the 31-year-old was on the books for $9 million next season. We expect him to get claimed as a third-down edge rusher soon.

Hopefully he clears waivers, but he may not. $4m is a good bit of $$ for the Falcons cap but not for those teams with tons of it. 

If he clears waivers, and we don't make a move for him, I will be pretty disappointed. He isn't great but still a good player who did well in this system.

Why though ?? Yall want the team to sign everyone. They have pass rushers. Vic has been looking better for 2 games , looks like he’ll come back to where he was before. Which is much better

Simple answer.......he can also play linebacker very good and is a complete upgrade over foye and duke
