The Las Vegas Raiders re-signed wide receiver Hunter Renfrow on Friday. He received a two-year extension.
The contract can be worth $32 million. He will receive $21 million in guaranteed money.
Renfrow received $9 million at signing.
His new contract will kick in with the 2023 season. This is a nice raise from the $2.54 million that he will make in the final year of his rookie contract in 2022.
The undersized slot receiver had a career-high 103 receptions last season. However, with the acquisition of Davante Adams in the off-season, it is unlikely that Renfrow will continue with that productivity.
He had nearly 50 receptions more than the second-leading receiver. Darren Waller — who played in just 11 games — had 55 receptions.
Renfrow also led the Raiders with 1,038 yards. He had 373 more yards than Waller.
In contrast, Adams — who is considered the best receiver in the game — had 1,553 yards with the Green Bay Packers.
With Adams and a healthy Waller — who was mentioned in a potential trade to the Packers in the off-season— Renfrow will likely be the third-best receiver on the team. This is, of course, barring significant injuries to both Adams and Waller.
Despite the potential lack of receptions, as he may drop to 50-70 receptions, the Raiders rewarded Renfrow. They will see him as part of their future.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
