Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have signed another of their 2015 draft class to a contract -- their fourth pick signed from this class -- adding sixth round pick Max Valles.

The former college outside linebacker was chosen by the Raiders with the 161 overall selection as a defensive end.

The 6-5, 240-pound pass rusher finished second in the ACC with 9.0 sacks last season at Virginia last season. He added 55 tackles (24 solo) and 12.5 tackles for loss to earn a spot on the All-ACC third team.

His contract is expected to be worth $2.42 million over 4 years with a base salary of $470,393 in 2015.

Valles joins WR Amari Cooper, OT Anthony Morris, and WR Andre Debose as four of the team's ten draft picks now signed to their rookie contracts.
