Donald Penn signs two-year extension with Raiders

Word earlier this week was that the Raiders and left tackle were closing in on the new contract Penn was trying to get when he held himself out of training camp this summer.

Friday brings word that the deal is done. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it is a two-year deal worth $21 million, which represents a salary bump from the $5.8 million salary his current contract had in place for this season.

The full details of the deal aren’t available, but Rapoport reports that there are guarantees in place for the 2018 season and that Penn will have some of the money in the final year guaranteed as well if he plays well this year. There’s no word on what would constitute playing well enough to get those guarantees.

With Penn’s deal done, the Raiders have all five of their current starters on the offensive line under contract beyond this season. With David Sharpe, Jon Feliciano, Jylan Ware and Vadal Alexander all drafted in the last three years, they have their backups signed as well.

  1. Entire O Line, QB, RB’s, TE, and WR Corps signed through the next few seasons. What is already one of the top offenses in the league gets to stay mostly in tact for at least 3 more years. The youth and talent on offense will just continue to grow together and when vets like DP are ready to retire, hopefully some of these draft picks are in place to keep moving forward. People can bash Reggie all they want, but the guy has built a pretty solid and YOUNG team. Minus a player here or there, this team is really young and really talented.

  2. Another great move by Reggie and the Raider organization! Anyone who brings up his first 2 years in salary cap hell and an awful roster needs to have their head examined!! Since 2014 not a better GM in the league!!!!

    Seemed to good to be true, given what little Carr left on the table, and indeed Spotrac are saying his salary for 2017 is unchanged and that the increases come in future years, with future guarantees. And this is the risk for the Raiders – Carr’s salary means that in order to give big pay to other guys the money has to be spread further into the future and be somewhat more guaranteed than it otherwise need be. Which increases team risk if/when guys get injured, play less well or otherwise become trouble.

  5. Sorry Homer but the Raiders are being built to last. Payton Manning was the reason for the donkeys success. He’s gone now and so are your hopes and dreams. I hope you enjoyed it while it lasted. Good luck with Seaman and Paxton.

  7. Is not missing a block that results in your QB being out for the playoff’s a part of the requirement to reach the incentives.

    I hope I never get another Christmas eve present like that again.
