Raiders to Keep OLB Kamerion Wimbley Under Contract


The Raiders will be keeping linebacker Kamerion Wimbley around for awhile.

Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports the Raiders have informed the starting OLB that they have bought back the final year of his rookie contract according to his agent Joe Linta.

Linta said last week that the team would send their intention by certified letter. The team had until the end of the day on March 3 to use the buyback option. The Raiders, who acquired the pass rusher from the Cleveland Browns on Mar. 14, 2010 for a third-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, was able to void the final season of his Contract because he met minimum playing time requirements. His salary for 2011 was $635,000 before the void.
