The Raiders said goodbye to a handful of starting offensive linemen this offseason, but they’ve moved to hold onto another one for years to come.

Left tackle Kolton Miller‘s agency Octagon announced that their client has reached agreement on an extension with the team.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that it is a three-year extension beyond the Raiders’ fifth-year option on Miller’s rookie deal for the 2022 season. He reports the deal is worth more than $18 million per season and has $42.6 million guaranteed at signing.

Miller was the 15th pick of the first round in 2018 and the Raiders’ first pick since Jon Gruden returned as their head coach. He is also the first player selected in the first round of the 2018 draft to sign an extension with his team.

He has started all 46 games he’s played since joining the team and the hope is that number will grow much larger in Las Vegas.

  1. Great deal for my RAIDERS! He’s the best one of the bunch that we had, got rid of old wood.

  2. Pretty good LT. His contract seems a bit expensive now but by the time it comes to paying out (2025-2027), it will be much more palatable…assuming he doesn’t drop off in play.

  3. A expensive contract for an average L.T. A another great signing by the two clowns who run this team.!

  4. He’s excellent in pass pro, but won’t be elite until he improves in run blocking. Overall he’s a good LT, who has improved drastically, and had a ton of room to grow. He’s earned his payday.

  5. Kolton has things you can’t coach. Size, feet, toughness, competitiveness, character. But he also has one of the best offensive line coaches in the NFL. Kolton has gotten better each year. He’s a hard worker. He’s still getting stronger, and he hasn’t reached his prime. But the best ability is availability, and he hasn’t missed a start. He’s played with a lot of injuries, too. The very same injuries that many linemen hang it up for the season. This kid is a Raider.

  6. Love some of the comments….fyi…he has never missed a game, like others we have had in the past. Now let get another bookend on the right side with the 17th pick. Hopefully Slater drops to them.

  7. Miller missed two games in 2020.

    I think the $$$$ value might have something to do with all the salary cuts to the line.

    He is extremely athletic and fast for his size. That KC LB he got the angle on and tackled near the 10 a few seasons ago was amazing. He made up YARDS chasing/angling someone 120 pounds lighter and nowhere near his 6’8″. KC went for it on 4th down on the drive and didn’t score. Pure effort…

  8. Much better in pass pro than run blocking, and I don’t know why they would extend a first rounder going into his fourth year, but it’s rare to see a Raider first round pick get extended instead of traded, so I’m not complaining.

  9. Who’s going to fill the other 4 spots on the line??? Another losing season..can’t take this clown show anymore..need to sell and move to the Great White North,then maybe I can root for this sad franchise again.
