The defensive mind of Jack Del Rio doesn’t envision Tyvon Branch in Oakland’s future.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday evening the Raiders will release the safety, per a source informed of the situation.

A fourth-round selection of the Raiders in 2008, Branch struggled with injuries in the last two seasons, appearing in just five games and tallying 27 tackles over that span.

Despite playing sparingly, Branch will have a market. The safety recorded at least 74 tackles and one interception in each season from 2010 through 2012. When healthy, the 28-year-old offers a potential that will pique the interest of others.
