The Oakland Raiders have signed offensive lineman Rodney Hudson to a three-year, $33.75 million contract extension, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The deal features $24.4 million in guaranteed money.

Hudson is now the highest-paid center in the league, as he will be earning $11.25 million annually.

The 30-year-old is entering his fifth season with the Raiders, as he originally signed with the club back in 2015. Since arriving in the Bay Area, Hudson has been one of the better centers in football, earning back-to-back Pro Bowl appearances in 2016 and 2017.

He also has started every game three seasons in a row.

Hudson, who played his collegiate football at Florida State, was originally selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round (55th pick overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft.

He became the starting center for the Chiefs in 2012, but played in just three games due to injury. Hudson then re-assumed his position as the full-time starter in 2013, only missing one start over the course of his final two seasons in Kansas City.

The Mobile, Al. native then proceeded to sign a five-year deal with Oakland in free agency in 2015.

Meanwhile, the Raiders are coming off of a 2018 campaign in which they won just four games, further prolonging their misery. Since last making the Super Bowl during the 2002 season, Oakland has made the playoffs just once.

However, thanks to an offseason in which the Raiders brought in big names such as Antonio Brown, Trent Brown and Tyrell Williams, not to mention some key additions on defense, Oakland is hoping to contend for a playoff spot in 2019.
