ALAMEDA, California — The Oakland Raiders have cut receiver Greg Little, safety Brandian Ross and 20 other players to reduce their roster to the 53-man limit.

Little impressed early in training camp but struggled in recent weeks in practice and exhibition games, leading to his release Saturday. Brice Butler made the team after catch four touchdown passes in the exhibition season.

Ross started 13 games last season in place of injured Tyvon Branch but ended up getting beaten out for a roster spot as a reserve safety this year by rookie Jonathan Dowling and veteran Usama Young.

Running back Jeremy Stewart, a key special teams player, and defensive end Jack Crawford, a 2012 fifth-round pick, were also released.
