Raiders set sights on next contract extension after Hunter Renfrow

After signing receiver Hunter Renfrow to a contract extension, the Las Vegas Raiders already have one player who is a priority to re-sign.

This has been a week where wide receivers got paid. The Los Angeles Rams signed Super Bowl 56 MVP to a three-year, $80 million contract extension. Then on Friday, June 10, the Las Vegas Raiders agreed to terms with Hunter Renfrow on a two-year, $32 million deal.

With one of their top offensive players now locked under contract for an additional two years, who could be the next player to receive an extension?

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN Points out that tight end Darren Waller is expected to be a priority, while also mentioning that the team has talked about a new deal with linebacker Denzel Perryman is entering the final year of his deal.

Who is next to receive contract extension from Raiders?

Since joining the Raiders in 2018, Waller has become one of the top players at his position. Back in 2019, Waller signed a four-year, $29.8 million contract with the Raiders. He has two more seasons remaining before he is a free agent.

This past season, Waller caught 55-of-93 targets for 665 yards and two touchdowns through 11 games. In his four years with the Raiders, the tight end recorded 258 receptions for 3,081 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Perryman was acquired by Las Vegas just ahead of the 2021 season, and he turned out to be a great addition, as he made the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career. He is entering the final season of his two-year, $6 million deal that he signed with the Carolina Panthers.

In his one season with Las Vegas, Perryman recorded 154 total tackles, three defended passes, two fumble recoveries and one fumble recovery through 15 games. In coverage, Perryman allowed 63 receptions for 511 yards and five touchdowns on 80 targets, per Pro Football Reference.

The Raiders are looking to build off of their 2021 season by locking in some of the stars on their team. When it comes to who is next to get an extension, keep an eye on Waller and Perryman.
