The Raiders have signed outside linebacker Khalil Mack to his rookie contract, reports Field Yates of ESPN.com (via Twitter). Mack, the fifth overall selection last Thursday, becomes the highest draft pick to ink his deal so far.
As a first-round pick, Mack will receive a four-year contract and the Raiders will hold a fifth-year option on the deal. According to Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap, slot money for the fifth overall pick should ensure that Mack receives a signing bonus of more than $11MM, and that the base value of his four-year pact works out to about $18.677MM.
In addition to being the highest-picked player to sign his deal to date, Mack is also the first of eight Oakland draftees to be locked up. You can follow the progress of this year’s draft pick signings right here.
