Raiders parting ways with Janikowski after 18-year run

Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski won't return after 18-year run with team

The soon-to-be 40-year-old is the Raiders' all-time leading scorer with 1,799 points, including 414 field goals.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that the Raiders will not bring back their longtime kicker in 2018.

A first round pick in 2000, Janikowski was hit-or-miss as a pro.

Only two other members of that 2000 draft class are active in the NFL.

Tom Brady now stands alone.

The left-footed Janikowski has 1,799 points, including 414 field goals, both ranking 10th in National Football League history.

In fact, a year ago it was rumored that Janikowski, who didn't kick at all for Oakland in 2017, was on the chopping block midway through the season. Denver's Matt Prater broke that record with a 64-yarder in 2013.

Janikowski took a $1 million pay cut at the end of training camp in August and made $3 million in 2017. He ended up being placed on injured reserve with a back injury.

Giorgio Tavecchio, who took over kicking duties, converted 16 of 21 field-goal attempts and 33 of 34 extra-point tries.

Known for his big leg, Janikowski banged in 55 field goals from 50 yards or longer during his time in Oakland. The Raiders can tender Tavecchio, who is an exclusive-rights free agent, a contract offer when free agency begins March 14.
