Sebastian Janikowski will not return to the Raiders

But, it looks like the Raiders have made a decision to move on in 2018.

The Oakland Raiders reportedly informed kicker Sebastian Janikowski that they will not bring him back for the 2018 season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

He'll surely get another shot elsewhere, but it won't be for a lot of money.

This move was not a surprise, as Janikowski is 40 years old and missed all of 2017 with a back injury, but for fans of a certain age, it's oddly kind of sad. The other is New England quarterback Tom Brady, who just played in his eighth Super Bowl.

Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski (11) kicks the game-winning field goal out of the hold by punter Marquette King (7) during the fourth quarter against the Carolina Panthers at Oakland Coliseum. Denver's Matt Prater broke that record with a 64-yarder in 2013. Tavecchio hit 16 of the 21 field-goal attempts last season with his longest coming from 53 yards. While many questioned using the 17th overall pick on a kicker, Janikowski became one of the NFL's most reliable kickers.

Janikowski's contract ended after this past season, as did Tavecchio's.

Last season, Janikowski agreed to take a million-dollar pay cut and then dealt with a back issue which cost him the entire season.
