Christian Wilkins agrees to 4-year, $110 million deal to join Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are adding Christian Wilkins as the defensive tackle has reportedly agreed to a four-year deal worth $110 million. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, $84.75 million of the contract will be guaranteed.

Wilkins, 28, spent the first five seasons of his NFL career with the Miami Dolphins after they selected him 13th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Clemson. He’s coming off a season where he recorded a career-high nine sacks.

By adding Wilkins, a top player on the free-agent market, the Raiders are getting a durable presence on their line. Wilkins hasn’t missed a game in three seasons and has missed only two in his NFL career.

How good is Wilkins? His now-former Dolphins teammate Jalen Ramsey is pretty excited to see Wilkins and Maxx Crosby do some damage next season in Las Vegas.

The Dolphins and Wilkins attempted to work on an extension, dating back to last summer, but nothing was hammered out. And with the team dealing with salary cap issues, they didn’t franchise tag Wilkins last week, letting him hit the open market.

Wilkins would have cost approximately $22 million on a one-year deal had the Dolphins tagged him.
