Janikowski was replaced by kicker Giorgio Tavecchio past year when a back injury kept him on injured reserve throughout the season. He played in a franchise-record 268 games in 18 seasons. Babies who were born the day Janikowski was drafted are now finishing up their senior years of high school, having never lived through a season during which Janikowski was not a Raider. Oakland selected Janikowski out of Florida State with the 17th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft.

Sebastian Janikowski's time with the Raiders is set to be over according to Adam Schefter.

New NPA resolution framework long-term positive
It will remove uncertainty and impediments of various forms of restructuring earlier introduced and will be easier to implement. However, if the resolution plan entails restructuring of the loans , the standard loans will get classified as NPAs.

The move is not surprising considering Janikowski sat out the entire 2017 season with a back injury. Only one other player who is still in the league has been with one team as long as Janikowski.

The left-footed Janikowski has 1,799 points, including 414 field goals, both ranking 10th in National Football League history. Janikowski spent the season on injured reserve. Tavecchio hit 16 of the 21 field-goal attempts last season with his longest coming from 53 yards. The Raiders can tender Tavecchio, who is an exclusive-rights free agent, a contract offer when free agency begins March 14.
