As expected, Raiders tight end Darren Waller has finalized his change in representation, as he tries to replace a contract that pays out $6.75 million per year through 2023.

Waller, who previously was represented by Klutch Sports, is now represented by Drew Rosenhaus and Robert Bailey.

The hiring happened today, upon expiration of the mandatory five-day waiting period.

Rosenhaus plans on meeting with the Raiders today about Waller’s deal.

Waller’s contract has become more glaring as other pass-catchers have signed new deals. Earlier this year, the Raiders gave receiver Davante Adams a deal worth $28 million per year, and they paid receiver Hunter Renfrow $16.1 million per year.

Per a league source, the Raiders have made $255 million in payments and cash commitments for 2022.

Not long ago, the Raiders didn’t have that kind of money. The question now becomes how much do they have left?

  1. Raiders very quickly about to usher themselves into cap hell and go over budget if they concede in this contract offer. My guess is they walk from Waller after 2022. Ziegler would be a fool to overpay there even though Waller is clearly very good.

    Grumpy Waller could sink the locker room. Waller can fire agents left and right, but it’s pretty clear his asking price is too high at age 29.

  2. Well Florio the answer to the question of how much do they have left is 12.8 million dollars this year. See Over the cap. On that note how did the Giants cut a bunch of guys and end up in the red?

  3. mark davis is in so much debt, why every team executive (including multiple presidents) have quit in the last 12 months. he still ain’t paid the estate tax in california either, he’s gonna be forced to sell sooner than later

    He’s a fantastic locker room guy and a top three tight end. But I see your point dude, and you’re right, the Raiders are coming, it’s perfectly natural for you to embrace your worst fears.

    TB6 loves to call out virtually every team in the league for either being or soon to be in CAP HELL, but never does the homework. According to Over The Cap, the Raiders have the sixth most space in the league with $12.8 million. Meanwhile, TB’s beloved Patriots are 29th in the league with only $1.6 million available. Tell me who is in CAP HELL now? Oh yeah, the Patties are also in offensive coach hell, too! Nice preseason 😉
