Dave Tollefson DL OAK 10 Months
CSN Bay Area expects the Raiders to part ways with DE Dave Tollefson.
A pass-rushing specialist, Tollefson was invisible in the first season of a two-year contract in 2012, notching just 0.5 sacks. He's also on the wrong side of 30. The cap-strapped Raiders will save $1.6 million if they void the final year of Tollefson's contract.

DE Dave Tollefson's deal with the Raiders is for two years and $2.5 million.
It includes $1.5 million guaranteed. It's reserve money for a player who will serve as the Raiders' fifth or sixth defensive lineman. Despite his five-sack 2011, Tollefson won't be worth monitoring in IDP leagues.

The Packers have dropped out of the running for free agent DE Dave Tollefson.
It looks like he's either headed to the Raiders or Titans. Tollefson is a situational rusher with special teams value, but the Packers weren't going to overpay for a 30-year-old non-starter. He visited Tennessee late this week.

Free agent DE Dave Tollefson has no other visits lined up after visiting the Packers over the weekend.
Tollefson, of course, left Green Bay without a deal but "(remains) in the mix." The pass-rushing specialist previously visited the Seahawks, and has drawn interest from the Raiders. It would appear he needs to lower his asking price.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Raiders are interested in free agent DE Dave Tollefson.
The Packers and Seahawks are also pursuing the long-time Giant. Tollefson notched a career-high five sacks in 2011, but is not an every-down player and will turn 30 in July. His price will have to be right to end up with the cap-strapped Raiders.

A league source tells the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that the Packers have "definite interest" in free agent DE Dave Tollefson.
Tollefson, who goes 6-foot-4, 255, would presumably play outside linebacker in Green Bay's 3-4 scheme. He's been a defensive end with the Giants. Tollefson is turning 30 in July. He was the Packers' seventh-round draft pick in 2006.
