Raiders news: Las Vegas spends the most in NFL at linebacker


The Las Vegas Raiders have restructured multiple player deals in recent days to create a salary cap margin that has helped them secure veteran linebacker KJ Wright, who officially signed on Monday.

Two of the players who have restructured are linebackers Nick Kwiatkoski and Cory Littleton. Always, according to Over The Cap via Associated Press, the Raiders spend the most money in linebacker in the entire NFL.

Details of Wright’s contract have yet to be revealed, but it has been reported that he will earn around $ 4 million in Las Vegas this season. The Raiders also traded to linebacker Denzel Perryman last month. He signed a two-year, $ 6 million contract with the Carolina Panthers during the offseason. The Raiders can opt out of the case for next season.

Obviously the Raiders weren’t feeling good with their young linebackers so they got reinforcements and it didn’t come cheap. But if the financial commitment pays off on the ground, it will be worth it.
