Raiders release Walker, Ellis 

The Oakland Raiders have released wide receiver Javon Walker and defensive end Greg Ellis.

The team announced the moves on its Web site on Monday. Walker was a big disappointment after signing a $55 million free-agent contract with an $11 million signing bonus before the 2008 season. He caught 15 passes for 196 yards and one touchdown in two injury-plagued seasons in Oakland.

Walker restructured the deal last year and will be paid $2.6 million this season despite his release.

Ellis signed a two-year contract with Oakland last June. He was tied for the team lead with seven sacks last season despite dealing with knee problems. He was due $2.5 million next season.
