The Oakland Raiders have released wide receiver Javon Walker and defensive end Greg Ellis.

The team announced the moves on its Web site on Monday. Walker was a big disappointment after signing a $55 million free-agent contract with an $11 million signing bonus before the 2008 season. He caught 15 passes for 196 yards and one touchdown in two injury-plagued seasons in Oakland.

Walker restructured the deal last year and will be paid $2.6 million this season despite his release.

Ellis signed a two-year contract with Oakland last June. He was tied for the team lead with seven sacks last season despite dealing with knee problems. He was due $2.5 million next season.
