The Oakland Raiders will release future Hall of Fame Wide Reciever Tim Brown after Brown was informed that he would be demoted on the teams depth chart and not even be active on select regular season games. The Oakland Raiders, and Tim Brown, held a press conference to announce Brown's reported release. "Tim Brown one of the truly great players who has ever played in the National Football League, and obviously one of the truly great players that has ever played for the Raiders", said Raiders owner Al Davis. "It's been an incredible, incredible, great run and certainly I will miss wearing the Silver and Black, but what you miss is the relationships that you have with people," Brown said. "That's going to be the most difficult part of moving on", said Brown shortly after.

Tim Brown was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the 1988 draft after winning the Heisman Trophy at Notre Dame. In 16 pro seasons, Brown has caught 1,070 passes for 14,734 yards and 99 touchdowns. Brown is one of only 3 players (Jerry Rice, Chris Carter), to catch 1,000 passes. Brown is the Raiders all-time leader in punt returns. Brown has led the Raiders in recieving 11 times, has had nine 1,000 yard seasons, and has been selected to the Pro Bowl 9 times.
