The Raiders released veteran cornerback Marcus Peters on Monday.

Peters was benched Sunday against the Chiefs after struggling in pass coverage and as a tackler. Both have been persistent issues throughout the season.

Raiders coach Antonio Pierce, who had a spirited sideline conversation with Peters shortly after the benching, said after the game that benching the veteran cornerback was a “coach’s decision.”


Peters, 30, is a two-time first-team All-Pro and has made three Pro Bowls.

The Oakland native signed with the Raiders, his childhood team, in July on a one-year, $3 million deal.
