The Las Vegas Raiders are set to release guard Richie Incognito, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The move will be done to ease the team's salary-cap issues.

The Raiders signed Incognito in 2019. He was due $5 million in base salary in 2021.

Incognito missed most of the 2020 campaign after being placed on the injured reserve in Week 2 following an Achilles injury. The 37-year-old is now fully healthy and looks forward to continuing his career in Las Vegas or elsewhere, Rapoport adds.

A second-round selection in the 2005 draft, Incognito has started 14 games during his time in the silver and black.

The four-time Pro Bowler has spent time with the then-St. Louis Rams, Buffalo Bills, and Miami Dolphins.

Las Vegas also released guard Gabe Jackson this week and is reportedly open to trading starting tackle Trent Brown.

The Raiders will free up nearly $15 million by releasing Jackson and Incognito.
