Raiders trade away 2021 draft pick for future selection

The Raiders are moving on from 2021 fourth-round pick Tyree Gillespie.

Tennessee agreed to acquire the second-year safety out of Missouri in exchange for a future conditional late-round pick on Tuesday.

Gillespie played in 11 games as a rookie, mostly on special teams. He played just 13 defensive snaps and found himself buried on the depth chart during training camp under a new coaching staff.
