Unofficial listing of 2018 Raiders personnel developments:

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski has been informed by the Raiders that he will not be brought back for the 2018 season, according to published reports Feb. 14. Janikowski, who turns 40 on March 2, spent 18 seasons with the team.

The Raiders confirmed Janikowski's departure on Feb. 15 in a statement from team owner Mark Davis.

Janikowski spent the 2017 season on injured reserve because of a back injury. Giorgio Travecchio made 16 of 21 field goal attempts and was successful on 33 of 34 extra-point tries as the Raiders' primary kicker last season.

Janikowski finishes his Raiders career as the franchise's leading scorer with 1,799 points, 11th on the league's all-time scoring list. The native of Poland holds the NFL record for field goals of 50 yards or longer with 55.

Janikowski was selected by Oakland with the 17th pick in the 2000 draft. Only the Patriots' Tom Brady and former Raider and current Texans punter Shane Lechler are the only players from that year's draft still playing in the NFL.
