HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - There was a slim chance Colt Brennan would make the Oakland Raiders' roster this season, but that chance is now gone.

The former UH star quarterback was cut on Saturday by the team in silver and black.

It's the second time Colt has been released this summer.

The Washington Redskins cut the 27-year-old about a month ago, before getting a tryout with the Raiders, signing a one-year deal.

But his playing time was limited in the pre-season. He only appeared in one game, handing off most of the time and completing his only pass.

Colt was one of 21 cuts made by the Raiders on Saturday, as they try to get to their 53-man roster limit.

It's likely that Brennan will be out of pro football for the first time since he was drafted by the Redskins two years ago.
