Loper and Bennett Sign Contracts

Daniel Loper and Michael Bennett signed contracts prior to the Collective Bargaining Agreement expiring.

Loper signed for two years and $4.2 million. The contract contains $300,000 bonus and he will make $1.9 million in 2011 and $2 million in 2012. At that number he should be the favorite to start at left guard in 2011.

Bennett signed a one-year $890,000 contract that makes him the primary insurance policy against losing Michael Bush.

That means since the end of the regular season, the Raiders have signed or tagged the following players:

Michael Bennett
Daniel Loper
Nick Miller
Rock Cartwright
Stanford Routt
John Henderson
Richard Seymour
Kamerion Wimbley

Samson Satele
Michael Bush
Zach Miller

The last three are likely to be unrestricted free agents when the league and the union agree on a new CBA.

Michael Huff and Nnamdi Asomugha will also be unrestricted free agents. What was a huge free agent class for the Raiders has been whittled down to five key players. I theorized the Raiders would likely lose two key free agents this offseason and we are right on target with that prediction.
