Reports: Raiders will release veteran offensive lineman Kevin Boothe

Monday May 4th, 2015

The Oakland Raiders will release veteran offensive lineman Kevin Boothe, according to multiple reports. Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports was first to report the news. 

Boothe, who turns 32 in July, signed a two-year contract with the Raiders before last season. Boothe appeared in nine games in 2014 as a backup, playing 1.8% of the team's offensive snaps and 5.2% of the plays on special teams. 

Boothe was drafted by the Raiders in the sixth round in 2006 and started 14 games as a rookie. He was waived after one season and picked up by the New York Giants. He played seven seasons for the Giants at center and both guard positions, starting all 16 games in the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
