Raiders signed CB Daryl Worley, formerly of the Eagles.

Worley was cut by the Eagles after being arrested for DUI, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, and disorderly conduct fighting on April 15. A 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers, Worley put some promising moments on tape as a rookie but struggled last season and fell into a rotation for snaps.

Raiders exercised WR Amari Cooper's fifth-year team option for 2019.

There was some manufactured drama over whether the Raiders would extend Cooper's rookie contract by a year, but this was always going to be the outcome. Slated to make $3.53 million this season, Cooper will be due roughly $13.9 million in 2019. The option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Raiders could still walk away unless Cooper fails his physical before the start of the next league year. Wildly inconsistent through his first three NFL campaigns, 24-year-old (in June) Cooper has nevertheless already posted two 1,000-yard seasons.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Raiders are expected to exercise Amari Cooper's fifth-year option for 2019.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie was somewhat noncommittal when Cooper's option was discussed on Friday, telling reporters he didn't want to "put the cart before the horse." However, this was always the expected outcome for Cooper, even coming off a down year in 2017. Cooper's option is expected to be worth $13.9 million.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said the team has been in touch with Amari Cooper's agent about "possibly" exercising his fifth-year option.

"I don’t want to put anything out there, don’t want to put the cart before the horse so to speak," said McKenzie. "But we like Amari." A year ago, picking up Cooper's option would have been a no-brainer, but he damaged his stock by committing 10 drops last season, third-most in the NFL behind only Keenan Allen and Dez Bryant. The Raiders claim Cooper wasn't fully healthy, which may explain why the 23-year-old finished with career-lows in both catches (48) and receiving yards (680). The Raiders have until May 3 to decide on Cooper's option.

Free agent CB Daryl Worley has been charged with driving under the influence, a violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, disorderly conduct-fighting, and other related offenses.

The charges stem from an incident Sunday morning in Philadelphia in which Worley allegedly was tasered after becoming "combative" with police. A gun was allegedly recovered during the arrest. The Eagles released Worley on Sunday.

Eagles released CB Daryl Worley.

This was expected following Sunday's incident. It has not been specified what charges the 23-year-old is facing. Worley was arrested early Sunday morning after becoming "combative" with Philadelphia police when they showed up to find him passed out inside a vehicle blocking the highway. A gun was also recovered during the arrest. Worley was acquired from Carolina in exchange for Torrey Smith last month and the Eagles save $670,000 in cap space by releasing him.
Apr 15 - 5:40 PM

According to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles are expected to release CB Daryl Worley.

Worley was tasered and later arrested after becoming "combative" with Philadelphia police early Sunday morning. Authorities were called to the scene after the cornerback was found passed out inside a vehicle blocking the highway. This isn't Worley's first run-in with the law following an arrest for misdemeanor assault in college. Per Bowen, it is "likely, though not certain" that Worley will be cut as a result of Sunday's incident and that his fate is being discussed among "various parties." The Eagles also released a statement: "We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning." The 23-year-old was acquired from Carolina in a trade last month.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eagles CB Daryl Worley was arrested Sunday morning in Philadelphia following an altercation with police.

Per reports, Worley was tasered after he became "combative" with Philadelphia police and was arrested around 6 AM Sunday morning. A gun was also recovered during the arrest. Rapoport didn't specify what charges Worley is facing. A third-round pick of the Panthers in 2016, Worley was acquired last month in a trade that sent Torrey Smith to Carolina.

Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area believes Raiders OLB Khalil Mack's new deal could be in the range of $120 million over six years.

That would surpass the current high water mark for defensive players set by Von Miller in 2016. NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported last week that Mack was seeking $65 million guaranteed in extension talks with Oakland. The 2016 Defensive Player of the Year is set to earn $13.86 million in the final year of his rookie deal.
Apr 15 - 9:45 AM

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said extension talks with Khalil Mack have been "positive."

Not positive enough for Mack to show up for voluntary workouts, but the general manager is not concerned. "This is going to be a big contract and all sides are trying to make everything work," McKenzie said. "Everybody is aware of everything and nobody is surprised. Everything, on all sides has been positive. I can't stress that enough." Mack is reportedly looking for "in excess" of $65 million guaranteed in his new deal.

NFL.com reports contract-year OLB Khalil Mack is seeking "in excess" of $65 million guaranteed in his new contract.

That would put Mack just short of Von Miller's record of $70 million for a defensive player. We would assume Mack will start out hoping to surpass that. Currently slated to make $13.846 million in the final year of his rookie contract, Mack is skipping the voluntary start of the Raiders' offseason program.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Khalil Mack did not report for the opening day of the Raiders' offseason program.

It is certainly possible this is much ado about nothing, but it notable with Mack entering the final year of his rookie deal. The two sides have reportedly engaged in extension talks, but the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken reports they were not close in early discussions. Mack is currently scheduled to earn $13.846 million in 2018.

Raiders signed DE Armonty Bryant.

Bryant spent 2017 out of the league after getting cut from Detroit. Suspensions have limited him to just five appearances the last two seasons. Bryant has been a solid pass rusher when on the field, posting 12 sacks in 36 games. He'll compete for a sub-package role in Oakland.
Apr 6 - 5:40 PM

Raiders signed CB Senquez Golson.

A 2015 second-round pick, Golson never lived up to his draft status in Pittsburgh, failing to appear in any games. He spent last season on Tampa's practice squad. Golson is another flyer to a secondary that's lost T.J. Carrie, Sean Smith and David Amerson.
Apr 6 - 5:30 PM

Raiders signed WR/KR Dwayne Harris, formerly of the Giants.

Harris is entering his age-31 season, so he fits the profile of the new-old Raiders, who seem to be going out of their way to sign veterans. Harris has little-to-zero value as a receiver and missed most of last season with a broken foot before getting released by the Giants last month. Harris is the in-house favorite to replace KR Cordarrelle Patterson, who was traded to New England.
