No franchise in sports has to use crisis communications consultants as often as the Raiders.

The latest:

The Las Vegas Raiders have waived second-year cornerback Damon Arnette, a first-round pick in 2020, after video surfaced this weekend of Arnette making death threats while brandishing firearms.

Arnette, 25, had been on injured reserve since Oct. 9. He was also facing lawsuits stemming from a Las Vegas car accident last October.

"Very painful decision," said Raiders general manager Mike Mayock in a conference call. "We spent significant time, effort and resources trying to help him in all aspects of his life.

"There have been a series of bad decisions over the last year or so, but we can't stand, we cannot stand for the video of Damon with a gun, threatening to take a life. The content was unacceptable, contrary to our values and our owner Mark Davis has been very clear and very consistent that this is not how we will conduct ourselves in this community. The bottom line -- the Raiders will not tolerate this type of behavior."


Skol Vikes!!
