Darren Waller on the verge of becoming the highest paid TE?
The Las Vegas Raiders have done an outstanding job securing the services of several key players. However, one player who remains without a new long-term commitment is tight end Darren Waller. In an ever-evolving Raiders short story, new developments rose.
Raiders News: Will Las Vegas secure the services of Darren Waller?
Under his current contract, Waller is expected to be a free agent in 2024. However, given the contracts that have been issued recently, Waller is looking for a new deal. Take David Njoku of the Cleveland Browns, for example. In May, Njoku received a four-year extension, which would net Njoku more than $14 million each season. On the other hand, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle makes $15 million a year under his current contract.
For Waller, he’s apparently been in negotiations to try and get past Kittle’s contract. By NFL Insider Josina AndersonWaller is trying to work out a deal that will earn him $16 million a year.
“Given his versatility and athletic ability, Waller has been deserving of a pay rise for some time now. It looks like a new deal could be coming soon.
It was also recently reported that the Raiders star has changed his portrayal. He recently left Klutch Sports Group, which sent the news world into a tailspin.
This is mainly due to the fact that many fail to understand what this movement really means; Good or bad? Anyway, the rumor mill has already turned a lot this week, and it’s only Monday. Could we see Waller receiving a new contract before Week 1? What do you think, Raider Nation? Will anything be done this week?
