The Raiders didn’t wait long to get another core piece of their future in the fold for the long term. Only days after making quarterback Derek Carr the highest-paid player in NFL history, the Raiders wrapped up an extension with offensive guard Gabe Jackson, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Per Rapoport, Jackson agreed to a five-year extension worth $56 million. Cleveland’s Kevin Zeitler has a $12 million average, and Oakland’s other guard, Kelechi Osemele, an $11.7 million average.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson‏ reports Jackson will receive $26 million guaranteed.

It had been expected that Jackson would get the team’s next extension, with linebacker Khalil Mack next in line.

Jackson, 25, became a starter when he entered the league as a third-round pick in 2014. He has started 44 of a possible 48 games in his career.

    How can that be? The media and haters keep telling us the end is near. Now that Carr is under contract we won’t be able to keep Cooper, Jackson, or Mack

    5 year $56m extension on top of his current contract, $1.7m this season, makes it a 6 year $57.7m contract. $9.6m annually. That’s too bad, I was really hoping my team would sign him after next season. The Raiders are finally making the right moves.

    How good does it feel fellow Raider fans to have a real deal GM

    Close to 25 mil per year tied up in the guard position…not good cap management, not good at all.

    I’m a very happy Raiders fan right now. It seems that our top players are doing team friendly deals let’s hope when Mack and Cooper are up the trend continues.

    If you invest $25 million into your quarterback and don’t put a solid line around them you will get fired look at the Colts they paid there quarterback and didn’t build an offensive line and that guy got fired. Do you really think that Reggie would make the same mistake?
    He will have deficiencies at other spots before risking the health of his quarterback and I’m fine with that Raider Nation out.

    18 sack given up last year. You win football games in the trenches O-line D-line. Great deal he would make much more on the open market

    Great, no one in football can overpower big Gabe, just maybe his teammate KO, warning, don’t mess around with Raiders OL !!

    Cap hell, here she comes!

    Great news. Gabe has been an excellent OG since game 1 of his rookie year and I’m very happy to see that he’ll continue to help Carr and the offense for several more years.
