The Las Vegas Raiders continued their surprising dismantling of their solid offensive line with the stunning release of Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Las Vegas has traded away Trent Brown, and released veterans Gabe Jackson and Richie Incognito, although Incognito is expected to return with a lower-paying deal in the future. The Raiders have now let their best offensive lineman walk.

Hudson, 31, will draw significant interest on the free agent market, and had he been available at the start of the free agency tampering period, he likely would have been the best offensive lineman on the open market. Hudson graded as Pro Football Focus’ 8th overall center last season.
