The Raiders cut the second-year kicker, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The news was first reported by Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Tavecchio was slated to handle Oakland's kicking duties after an encouraging rookie campaign that saw him replace longtime booter Sebastian Janikowski as the Raiders' uprights expert.
Tavecchio made 16 of 21 field-goal attempts last season and converted on 33 of 34 PATs. Gehlken noted that Tavecchio went 6-for-6 on his daily set of attempts Friday but missed a long try later in the afternoon.
