The decision to release Garcia means Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye will head into the regular season as Russell's backups.
Garcia, who has 116 career starts in 10 NFL seasons, signed a one-year contract with Oakland in April and acknowledged then the idea of being a backup was tough to handle, which may have factored into the team's decision to release the 39-year-old quarterback.
