Pro Bowl tight end is a bargain
His 2021 salary became fully guaranteed on Feb. 10 as part of his contract. He will be paid just over $6 million for the upcoming season. Waller signed a four-year, $29 million deal in 2019.
The Raiders are getting great value for Waller, who has become a true elite player at his position. Waller — who the Raiders signed from the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad in 2018 — has a combined 197 catches in the past two seasons. He set a Raiders’ team record with 107 catches in 2020. What a star.
