The Oakland Raiders have yet again gone ahead and spent big bucks to lock up one of their own big players, they signed a five year deal worth $48 million contract with the linebacker Kamerion Wimbley yesterday which gives the team some more room under the current salary cap agreement, Wimbley gets a $29 million guarantee. Basketball lines Wimbley said “It was in my best interest and the team’s best interest to try to work out something long term to try to get some players in here this year to help make us a better team,” “I was with that. I’d just like to thank Al Davis and the Raiders organization to allow me the opportunity to be here for more years and to give me the chance to prove myself and play for the Raiders.”

The big question is if the Raider will be in a position to use the salary cap savings to pull in two more free agents into their camp. The unrestricted tight ender Zach Miller and the restrictive running back Michael Bush. According to a league source Miller who has led the Raiders in the past three years was in Seattle visiting the Seahawks on Monday which raised questions about whether he will want to stay with Oakland.

Coach Hue Jackson said “Zach was a Raider last year, we want him to be a Raider now,” “That thing is going to come to a head here soon. It has to. I feel good about where we are and, hopefully, he’ll get back to us, we’ll get back to him, and we’ll try to get something resolved.”

Oakland has given out big deals during the offseason in order to keep their defensive tackle Richard Seymour as well as cornerback Stanford Routt as well as placed the franchise tag on Wimbley in order to keep him for one last year. Wimbly according to sources will be paid $11.3 million franchise tag tender prior to agreeing to the long term deal which makes him now the most highest paid linebackers in the NFL.

He said “The new contract has to be earned so I definitely look forward to the opportunity to go out and playing and earning every bit of the contract,”
