    Adam Caplan of reports the Oakland Raiders and franchised outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension. According to Caplan, the deal is worth $48 million and includes $29 million in guarantees. A 2006 first-round pick out of Florida State by the Cleveland Browns, Wimbley recorded 248 tackles and 26.5 quarterback sacks his first four seasons in the league. Traded to the Raiders for a 2010 third-round draft choice, which the Browns used on quarterback Colt McCoy, Wimbley had 58 tackles and a team-high nine quarterback sacks last season. The final year of Wimbley's rookie contract voided, and the Raiders place the "exclusive" franchise tag, worth $11.312 million in guaranteed base salary, on Wimbley prior to the lockout.

    very happy about this, they need to use him more in pass rush and blitzes tho. he can easily double his sacks
