Darren Waller signs three-year contract
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Darren Waller and the Las Vegas Raiders have agreed to a three-year contract extension, which will reportedly include $51 million in new money.
The deal would keep Waller for five more seasons and place him in the league's highest-paid tight ends range.
He is expected to earn $25 million over the next two years, including more than $2.5 million in active roster bonuses, followed by $12 million in 2024, $13 million in 2025, and $15 million in 2026.
Waller was kicked out of Georgia Tech by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL substance abuse policy and missed the entire 2017 season for another substance abuse violation.
After completing a rehabilitation program, Waller joined the Raiders' training squad in the middle of the 2018 season, appearing in four games and making six receptions for 75 yards.
Recent injuries have left Waller, almost 30, in a potential delay in the extension of his contract.
"Waller's dedication to the team is paying off ahead of their Week 1 game against the Chargers on Sunday.
