Sebastian Janikowski reportedly won't be brought back by Raiders

Sebastian Janikowski reportedly won't be brought back by Raiders

Janikowski was replaced by kicker Giorgio Tavecchio a year ago when a back injury kept him on injured reserve throughout the season.

It sounds like the Oakland Raiders are giving up on former first-round pick Sebastian Janikowski without really giving him much of a chance.

Sebastian Janikowski's time with the Raiders is set to be over according to Adam Schefter. Janikowski was drafted by the Raiders from Florida State in the first round in 2000, during Gruden's first stint as head coach.

Christian Eriksen praises Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino after Juventus match
Mauricio Pochettino's side found themselves 2-0 down inside nine minutes, with Gonzalo Higuain bagging an early brace. Tottenham were rewarded for their endeavour when Christian Eriksen's free-kick levelled it up in the 71st minute.

One of the longest tenures for an National Football League player on a single team has finally come to an end.

This move was not a surprise, as Janikowski is 40 years old and missed all of 2017 with a back injury, but for fans of a certain age, it's oddly kind of sad. He hit 16 of 21 field goals with a long of 53 yards and made all but one of his extra points.

One of the most controversial draft picks of late owner Al Davis, Janikowski was the No. 17 overall selection after being a two-time Lou Groza award victor at Florida State as the best kicker in college football. He was placed on injured reserve the day before the season opener.
