The Raiders and Darren Waller were working on getting a contract extension done before Sunday, and they made it by a day.

Waller and the Raiders have agreed to a three-year contract extension, agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed.

The Raiders had Waller under contract for two more seasons at $6.75 million a year, but they agreed to a new deal with $51 million in new money.

Rosenhaus noted that negotiations were challenging, and Waller hired Rosenhaus just two weeks ago to try to get a deal done before the start of the season.

Waller, who will turn 30 on Tuesday, has played his best football with the Raiders, and now they’ve invested in keeping him around for the foreseeable future.

  1. Good for him. There was speculation he was going to be the odd man out for the new regime. Wonder if those plans changed when they got a load of his hands. He’s invaluable in the short passing game they’re rumored to be installing, Waller plucks all those darts out of the air that Amari Cooper would drop regularly.

  2. In my opinion Darren is the best tight end now. He will be next season. He will be the season after that.

  3. Great, now go out there tomorrow and get 2 TDs and 50 plus yards receiving! My fantasy team needs it!

  4. He will be reworking a new contract somewhere else soon, the Raiders losing season begins tomorrow. The Chargers win easily.

  5. There was never speculation that he was going to be the odd man out. The HC had Gronk. You don’t think he wants a dominate TE on the roster????

  6. Once again more ridiculous and absurd comparisons from the t@rdbrain. He’s not even close to being Gronk and McDaniels is not going to have success, he can’t bring the Patriots dynasty to LV, no matter how much you fantasize about it.

  7. Waller is injured too much, Carr will have little to no time with Mack and Bosa in his face. Tomorrow we will see INTs and a pick six from Derek Carr. Chargers are going to stomp the Raiders into the cellar tomorrow.

    It won’t be a cakewalk, but I expect the Raiders to win a close game.

    More like the Raiders will win easily, with Waller running wild all over the Bolts.

    ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    You love to provide false hope and hype. Chargers will have 6-8 more wins than the Raiders. The first win will be in the Chargers column as of tomorrow evening.

  9. Good for Waller and the Raiders. He deserves to get paid, he was worked hard and is one of the best TEs in the game. That said, I think the Chargers will roll over the Raiders Week 1. The Raiders’ cobbled-together-at-the-last-moment OL is weak and the Chargers have a pretty good edge rushing duo. The Raiders’ secondary is also suspect. The Chargers have Herbert behind a solid OL and continuity with Herbert’s receiving weapons, the offensive scheme and coaching. All of that works in the Chargers’ favor. Herbert torched the Giants last season when Patrick Graham was the DC. He’s now the Raiders’ DC. All signs point to the Chargers winning this one soundly.

  10. Where this kid was in his personal life, to where he is now? He’s a great player, but a solid human. Now beat the Chargers!

  11. This is very good news i still have my doubts about the coach but we shall see how it plays out. Love this for my Raiders Waller is a true beast I’m glad they resigned him for a while.
    Silver and Black 42 Bolts 17

  12. The Raiders just acquired the best receiver in the NFL who’s going to open up the whole field Carr and Adams chemistry should be epic. Raiders 35 Chargers 21

  13. It’s common knowledge by now that the Raiders are the worst team in this division.

    Chiefs/Chargers/Broncos all improved!

    Raiders got Devante Adams (without Aaron Rodgers) LMAOOOOOOO!!!!!

  14. Waller is injured t00 much, Carr will have little to no time with Mack and Bosa in his face. Tomorrow we will see INTs and a pick six from Derek Carr. Chargers are going to stomp the Raiders into the cellar tomorrow.

  15. Gotta luv the Charger coach who else goes for a 4th down and 14 on the 30 yard line LOL … the Bolts are way better with there new QB Sherbert the kid can sling it .

  16. The Raiders are fools gold, I can see why the feeble minded Raiders fans think their Devante Adams trade is going to carry them. However, they did not improve their OL nor defense enough.

    Waller is a great TE, I hope he does well. I don’t think the Raiders will be able to maintain a record that will earn them a playoff berth. The Chargers and Chiefs will be battling out the AFCW for first place and both make the playoffs. The Broncos and Raiders fight for the consolation prize of third place.

    Couldn’t agree more. There is no comparison to Gronk and Darren Waller.

    I also don’t think McDaniels is the answer in Las Vegas.

    People are who make ridiculous comparisons like that clearly have an insecurity issue. Who the one guy is thumbs downing you post 500 times has a serious mental condition.

  19. Across the board the Chargers have a better roster. Herbert is a problem for every team he faces, and his weapons are legit. Outside of Miller the Raider O line is trash, but Adams can play. Rodgers didn’t run his routes for him. Raiders should be able to move the ball, but probably not enough to keep pace. I think the Chargers get this one, but I sure hope not.

  20. You know what’s hilarious…the amount of salty basement dwellers with multiple usernames that come on here just to talk trash then ghost when they are wrong. You deserve zero respect…and I like how Nincompoop Nikki mentions the “one” person down voting but doesn’t mention how many turds up vote. Little hypocrisy there. Reeks of worthless Charger fans in here.
