The Las Vegas Raiders have made it a point to sign some of their key contributors to contract extensions in the 2022 offseason. Names like quarterback Derek Carr and defensive end Maxx Crosby have been taken care of with new deals. On Friday, the Raiders added to their list of new extensions, agreeing to terms on a two-year, $32 million contract with wide receiver Hunter Renfrow. Head coach Josh McDaniels reacted to the signing, per the team’s website.
“We are thrilled to have reached an agreement with Hunter Renfrow and look forward to seeing him in Silver and Black for years to come,” said Raiders Head Coach Josh McDaniels. “Hunter is one of the true leaders on this team and he exemplifies the values of the organization in how he comes to work every day. He is a tremendous teammate on and off the field and the entire Raider Nation is excited to see what the future holds for Hunter.”
McDaniels said that he’s “excited to see what the future holds for Renfrow.” The Raiders head coach referred to the slot wideout as one of the “true leaders” on the team.
Renfrow is also one of the Raiders’ most important offensive players. He went to his first Pro Bowl in 2021 while helping Las Vegas field the NFL’s sixth-ranked passing attack in terms of yards per game.
It’s no wonder that McDaniels, an accomplished offensive mind, is excited to see what he can do with Renfrow. Las Vegas could make some noise, even in a crowded AFC West, in 2022.
