The extension is for three years and $51 million and will keep Waller in the desert for the next five years. Waller is considered one of the best tight ends in the game and will now be paid as such. Waller had missed a large portion of training with a hamstring injury but is expected to play Sunday when the team travels to Los Angeles to play the Chargers.
The Raiders could have an explosive passing game this season. They traded for Devante Adams, and the former Green Bay Packer is expected to have a big season with Derek Carr under center and other offensive weapons like Waller and Hunter Renfrow.
The Raiders are currently a 3.5-point underdog (-110) to the Browns on Sunday. The Bengals are +152 on the money line, and the game has an over/under of 52.5, over (-106), and under (-114). You can find the lines and props for this game and all others at FanDuel.com.
