Sebastian Janikowski's run as placekicker for the Raiders has reportedly come to an end after 18 years in Oakland.
Janikowski, who turns 40 in March, did not kick at all in 2017 due to a back injury. And he never will again for the Silver and Black, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter
Raiders informed kicker Sebastian Janikowski today that they do not plan to bring him back for the 2018 season, per source. An 18-year run with Raiders comes to an end.

No surprise there. That seemed clear after he went on IR, reinforced after Giorgio's solid start. https://t.co/BypOoDnX0a

The Raiders went the unconventional route and selected the placekicker in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft. Janikowski was a two-time All-American at Florida State.
In 17 seasons, 18 under contract, Janikowski has accounted for 1,799 points for the Raiders and made 414 of his 515 field goal attempts, good for 80.4 percent.
