Raiders, Donald Penn agree on 2-year, $21M contract

Raiders, Donald Penn agree on 2-year, $21M contract”

He proceeded to play the first seven years of his career with the Buccaneers, playing in all 16 games each season and starting all 16 games in every year except his rookie campaign, where he started 12. The strong bond between Pro Bowler and front office remains intact, with both sides eventually happy with the outcome.

With Janikowski and Penn taken care of contractually, the Raiders can now exclusively focus on football for the time being.

Penn showed up because he felt comfortable a deal would get done.

Penn was one of the best offensive tackles in the National Football League (NFL) a year ago and he was named to his second Pro Bowl.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (24) and tackle Donald Penn (72) warm up prior to the preseason game against Seattle Seahawks in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017. He is now under contract through the 2019 season.

It wasn't certain Penn would be around this long.

Donald Penn had faith the Raiders would take care of him.

Penn, 34, skipped all of training camp amid dissatisfaction with a $5.8 million salary. He made the Pro Bowl in 2010 and developed into one of the more underrated offensive linemen in the league during his time in Tampa Bay. They promised to do so, and stuck to their word.

A source said talks ramped up this week and a deal got done that ends a prolonged contract issue that produced few ill effects.

Penn played all 66 snaps against Tennessee in Week 1 despite later admitting he was concerned about his conditioning heading into the season-opener. A new deal came shortly after.
