The Raiders are going to release veteran defensive tackle Tommy Kelly on Wednesday, according to a CBSSports.com report.

Kelly, 32, has spent all nine of his NFL seasons with the Raiders after being signed as an undrafted free agent.

Kelly is slated to earn $6.5 million in base salary in 2013. He carries an $11.1 million cap figure based on a signing and miscellaneous bonus on top of his base salary.

Earlier this season, the Raiders released veterans Michael Huff, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Dave Tollefson in cost-saving measures.

Another report by CBSSports.com Tuesday said the Raiders are one of three teams interested in trading for Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
