The Oakland Raiders are releasing wide receiver Keelan Doss, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. An HBO “Hard Knocks” favorite, the Raiders will try to get him on the practice squad if he clears waivers — which may not happen considering his outstanding preseason.

Over four preseason games, Doss — an undrafted free agent out of UC Davis — caught 17 passes for 162 yards and a touchdown. He earned the trust of head coach Jon Gruden, as he said one of “man, I like this Doss kid” and “I want to see more of Keelan Doss,” multiple times during “Hard Knocks.”

Doss, last week, said he was approaching a potential cut by just playing his game, as he said, per

“I'm just playing my game. I feel like a lot of dudes, or certain dudes, they start thinking about where they are going to fit in. And for me, man, it's just going out there and executing and doing my job. And I try to play to my highest level and let the rest take care of itself.

I really don't think anything is too big for me, the moment or anything like that. I'm just staying calm, confident, and trusting my abilities in going out there and making plays.”

Though Doss didn't get the news he wanted to hear on Saturday, it shouldn't be too hard to find his next spot in the NFL. Over the preseason, the 6-foot-3 Alameda native showed that he could play in the NFL. Don't be surprised if he's one of the first players to be picked up off of waivers.
