Someone on the Raiders’ social media team forgot to delete their scheduled post regarding Tanner Muse today.
On Monday morning the team announced they were cutting Muse in a move that surprised many.
A surprise: The #Raiders are waiving linebacker Tanner Muse, source said.
Muse was a third-round pick out of Clemson in 2020. Missed his entire rookie season because of a toe injury, but took starter reps throughout camp and was a core special teamer.

Not long after cutting Muse, the team’s social media account wished him a happy birthday.
The team eventually deleted the Happy Birthday tweet but the damage had already been done.
