Raiders Safety Neiko Thorpe Accepts Pay Cut to Stay with Team

Neiko Thorpe

Raiders safety Neiko Thorpe will be making a little less in 2016, as reports say he’s accepted a pay cut in order to remain with the silver and black.

He was originally slated to earn $2.553MM in 2016, he’ll now receive a base salary of $675K and up to $1MM in total.

The former undrafted free agent out of Auburn compiled career-highs in tackles (40), passes defended (six), and interceptions (one) while starting two of his 14 games last season for the Raiders.

After that performance, the Raiders hit Thorpe with a second-round tender, giving him a $2.5MM+ non-guaranteed base for the coming season. Thorpe received the tender in March and inked it in April.
