Wimbley had been speaking to the Raiders about a long-term deal but the sides have been unable to bridge a gap, and so Linta said Wimbley would sign the $11.3 million tender on Tuesday.
Linta said the negotiations were cordial, but Wimbley is comfortable playing out the franchise tag in 2011.
"Mr. Davis and I couldn't agree on a long-term deal, but we agreed to keep talking as the labor process unfolds, and Kamerion will sign the franchise tender," Linta said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday.
The Raiders initially had exercised a $3.5 million buy-back option that would have given Wimbley about $4.1 million next season, which was intended to keep him off the free-agent market.
The NFL Management Council ruled that the buy-back violated the 30-percent rule and voided it, which meant Wimbley, a fifth-year pro who led the Raiders with nine sacks in 2010, likely would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency under a new collective bargaining agreement.
