The Las Vegas Raiders have been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately and the drama has continued. The team is releasing 2020 first-rounder Damon Arnette after various legal issues.

This comes just a week after the Raiders cut ties with Henry Ruggs III, who was involved in a tragic car accident that killed a 23-year-old woman and her dog. He is facing up to 40 years in prison.
Per Yahoo Sports, Arnette was sued by a woman after he was allegedly involved in a hit and run last year which left her with various injuries. The ex-Raiders cornerback was also sued by a valet worker on the Las Vegas Strip for an altercation at a casino where he got physical with the man.
But the worst of all is this video of Arnette flaunting firearms on camera and saying how he's going to kill someone:

Between the lawsuits and now this, the Raiders had no choice but to cut him. Ruggs and Arnette were both of the organization's first-round picks in 2020 and they're now gone.
Arnette has played a limited role for the Raiders this season. He's been on the injured reserve since Week 4. He featured in just 13 games across two years with Las Vegas.
This is definitely not a good look for the franchise.
