Raiders informed kicker Sebastian Janikowski today that they do not plan to bring him back for the 2018 season, per source. An 18-year run with Raiders comes to an end.
The former Florida State kicker and Polish native kicked a 57-yard game-winner in 2008 to beat the Jets in overtime for the longest overtime kick in history. His 55 career field goals from beyond 50 yards are also an NFL record.

Janikowski’s 1,799 career points and 414 field goals for the Raiders rank 10th in NFL history.
Should the Cowboys use the franchise tag on Lawrence by March 6, when the window closes, the team and player still would have until July 16 to agree to a long-term contract. That would be to Dallas’ benefit since a long-term deal would significantly lower Lawrence’s salary cap number.
Under the franchise tag, Lawrence would make about $17.5 million, all of which would count against the team’s salary cap next season. The Cowboys have about $20 million in cap space for 2018.

Cowboys will not place franchise tag on DeMarcus Lawrence tomorrow as that window opens but will do so by March 6 w/ understanding the goal is to reach a long-term deal. Both sides have until July 16 to make that happen.
Our first goal is to sign him to a long-term deal, Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said at the Senior Bowl last month. To me, the only reason you use a franchise tag is to hopefully protect yourself if you can’t get a long-term deal signed that you like. That’s normally the route we like to go. Certainly we’re going to roll up our sleeves and see if we can do something with DeMarcus without having a franchise tag.
