Raiders Sign Mario Edwards Jr.

The Raiders have signed second-round defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. to his rookie deal, the team announced today in a press release. Like the Giants and Patriots did earlier today, the Raiders have now finished locking up their 2015 draft class, with all 10 of their draftees now under contract.

According to Over the Cap, Edwards’ four-year pact will be worth a little over $6MM, and will feature a signing bonus of approximately $2.636MM. Edwards’ cap number for the 2015 season will be $1.094MM.

The 35th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Edwards spent three seasons at Florida State, and was named to the All-ACC First Team as a junior in 2014. He also played a role in helping the Seminoles win the 2013 BCS National Championship.

Only three 2015 draft picks have yet to agree to terms with their respective teams. First-round quarterback Marcus Mariota (Titans) third-round cornerback D’Joun Smith (Colts), and third-round defensive end Henry Anderson (Colts) remain unsigned.
