NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Thursday that linebacker Khalil Mack has signed a standard four-year contract with a fifth-year option and offset language, according to a source. The pact is fully guaranteed and worth $18,677,002, per Breer.

The Raiders later made the move official

Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed on Mack, the fifth overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. Last year's No. 5 pick, Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ziggy Ansah, signed a four-year, $18.595 million contract that included a $11.9 million signing bonus. 

The Raiders become the second team to get their first-round selection under contract. The Chicago Bears announced a deal Wednesday with cornerback Kyle Fuller, the 14th overall pick.

Mack had been floated during the pre-draft process as a potential first overall pick. He should be an immediate contributor on Oakland's improving defense.
