Raiders Franchise Wimbley, Ink Routt to a Three-Year Deal

The Raiders today placed their franchise tag on linebacker Kamerion Wimbley and agreed to an extension with cornerback Stanford Routt. By receiving the franchise tag, Wimbley was offered a one-year tender at $10,151 million.

Routt comes to terms on a three-year, $31.5 million contract that included $20 million in guarantees. Wimbley is still very young, just 27, and came to the Raiders from Cleveland last year and had nine sacks. He has 35½ career sacks in his five-year career.

The 27-year-old Routt recorded 55 tackles and had two interceptions for the Raiders last season.
