ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have waived safety Jonathan Dowling, making the move a day before their third preseason game.

The team announced the move Saturday on Twitter ahead of Sunday night's home preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

A seventh-round draft pick out of Western Kentucky in 2014, Dowling played in seven games with no starts last season as a rookie. He made four tackles.

Dowling had his first career interception — in a preseason game — when he picked off a pass by Shaun Hill in a 20-12 loss at Minnesota last Saturday.

Oakland has depth at the safety spot with veteran Charles Woodson and also signed free agent Taylor Mays on Wednesday.
