Gabe Jackson Contract Extension “Will Likely Get Done”
With Derek Carr’s new deal in the books, offensive lineman Gabe Jackson is next in line.
With QB Derek Carr done, the #Raiders have turned their attention to G Gabe Jackson. I'm told, "it is very, very early" in contract talks.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie had stated that re-signing Jackson would be a priority before the season begins and according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, that deal “will likely get done.”
Jackson is entering the final year of rookie contract and carries just a $1,797,000 base salary for the upcoming season.
As for Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper, their money is coming too.
The Raiders picked up the fifth-year option on Mack’s contract locking him to the team through 2018 and a fifth-year option on Cooper would keep the star wideout with the team through 2019.
In other words, barring holdouts, the Raiders’ core will be together for at least the next two years.
