The Oakland Raiders released cornerback Chris Johnson and safety Hiram Eugene on Friday, Yahoo! Sports reported.

The cuts are the latest in a series of moves the team has made recently to stay under the salary cap. Shedding the two defensive backs is expected to save Oakland $6 million against the cap in 2012.

Eugene didn't play at all last season after dislocating a hip in the preseason. Johnson went on injured reserve with a hamstring injury after four games.
