The Raiders are signing Waller, in the midst of a breakout season, to a contract extension through 2023 that is expected to be around $9 million per season, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported on Wednesday evening. Pelissero added it's essentially a three-year extension. The team later confirmed the extension.
Waller was in the final season of his current deal and would have been a restricted free agent in March.
Waller played in only four games in 2018, but in 2019 has come into his own and established himself as a bona fide offensive weapon.
Having battled a publicized drug addiction, Waller's rise has been a feel-good story.
