Raiders agree to terms with rookie Gareon Conley

Rookie cornerback Gareon Conley has agreed to terms with the Raiders, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported.

The Raiders now have signed all nine players in their draft class. They opened training camp Friday.

Conley, the 24th overall pick, becomes the next-to-last first-rounder to agree to terms. Titans receiver Corey Davis now stands as the lone unsigned first-round pick.

Conley’s signing was complicated by a Cleveland police investigation that continues into a rape accusation made against Conley in April. Conley has denied the allegation.

The Raiders have said all along they felt comfortable in their choice of Conley, believing he will be cleared. Jack Del Rio said earlier this week, in an appearance on 95.7 The Game, that the team remains “confident about the decision we made and the person we have.”

  1. As Coach Del Rio said earlier this week, he expected Obi and Gareon to be signed real soon.

    RAIDER NATION!!!!!!!

  2. This has dragged on for a while you would think if there was evidence he would have been charged already. Maybe the DA is holding out longer to see if any additional evidence. This is a high profile case a DA can make there name on last thing they want to do is charge him and lose.

  3. Hipster Dufus says:

    Couldn’t have signed him unless they were assured by someone that no charges would be filed.

    ……………….

    Well, it’s going to a grand jury, so you better hope he’s more innocent than a ham sandwich.

    This is probably why it took so long…negotiating what he may have to pay back if not available.

    This Friday, signs contract. Next Friday, indicted.
