(CTN News) – When Darren Waller signed his contract during his breakout season in 2019, he had two years remaining on the deal. The Las Vegas Raiders have extended the contract of star tight end Darren Waller by three years.

The sides reached a deal on Saturday, according to Drew Rosenhaus, the agent. The deal adds $51 million to Waller’s existing contract, which previously provided him with about $7 million in each of the next two seasons.

In the reworked deal, Darren Waller will earn an average of more than $13 million per season through 2026. Newly negotiated money averages $17 million per year, exceeding the top existing deal at the position that pays San Francisco’s George Kittle $15 million a year. Prior to this position, Waller had the 18th highest average annual salary.
