With an average annual salary of $7,575,001, Waller is the 17th-highest paid tight end in football. Waller had 55 catches for 665 yards and two touchdowns last season, a year which he missed six games due to injury. The Pro Bowl tight end confirmed in April he has no plans to leave the Raiders this year and “loved playing in Vegas.” 

Perryman had a career-high 154 tackles in his first season as full-time starting linebacker, starting all 15 games he played for Vegas. He also had 102 solo tackles and three passes defensed. Like Waller, Perryman reported to camp Wednesday even though they are seeking a new deal. 

“I knew that was coming,” Perryman said in regards to contract questions, via NFL.com. “Let me answer that question: My agent Ron Butler is handling that. I just want to play football. That’s it. I was waiting on it. That’s why I’m sweating. I was waiting on it.”
