The Raiders and Left Tackle, Donald Penn have agreed to the terms of a two-year, $21M extension.
The deal will include guaranteed money for the player for the upcoming 2018 season and if he has a good season, that guaranteed money will extend into 2019. Penn will average $10 million in the final two years of the agreement.
Both parties have been close to a new extension agreement for a while now, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise. Penn had been holding out for a new deal and it appears as though the Raiders have held up their end of the agreement and it’s time to put pen to paper.
Penn, who is 34, started his NFL career with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Utah State back in 2006. It was only a few months later that Penn signed on with the Buccaneers during his rookie season and spent eight years in Tampa Bay before he was released by the team in 2014.
The Raiders came in soon after and signed him to a two-year, $11.9 million contract that included $5 million guaranteed last year. Penn stands to make a base salary of $5.8 million for the 2017 season.
