Raiders extend Pro-Bowl Wide Receiver


The Las Vegas Raiders have extended the contract of wide receiver Hunter Renfrow by two years. Heading into the 2022 season, Renfrow was entering the final year of his rookie contract worth only $2.8 million over four years. The new two-year extension is worth $32 million with $21 million in guaranteed money. It will keep the 26-year-old under contract until after the 2024 season. 

Renfrow is coming off an excellent 2021 campaign. After recording no more than 660 receiving yards in each of his previous two seasons, the wide receiver broke out for 1,038 receiving yards and 103 receptions this season. He was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career, and he helped the Raiders on a deep playoff run that ended just one win away from going to the Super Bowl. 

Renfrow's extension comes in the midst of a flurry of Raiders' offseason activity. After trading for and signing superstar wide receiver Davante Adams to a 5-year, $140 million contract, the Raiders also resigned defensive end Maxx Crosby to a 4-year deal worth $98.8 million and quarterback Derek Carr to a 3-year, $121.5 million contract. 

Finishing just one win away from the Super Bowl last season, the Raiders are poised to make another deep run this season.
