ALAMEDA, California — The Oakland Raiders are planning to release two starters from last year's team, cutting ties with receiver James Jones and linebacker Miles Burris.

Jones told CSN California that general manager Reggie McKenzie told him he was going to be cut and Burris announced on his Twitter account Monday that he was going to be released as well.

The moves came after the Raiders selected potential replacements in last week's draft. Oakland used its first-round pick on receiver Amari Cooper and then drafted linebackers Ben Heeney of Kansas and Neiron Bell of Florida in the fifth round.

Fox Sports also reported that the Raiders will release backup offensive linemen Kevin Boothe.
