#Raiders deal for Amari Burney: four years: $4.005 million, $165,116 signing bonus https://t.co/mE6l3OyJ08— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) May 9, 2023
Burney is a sixth-round draft pick from Florida. Expect the Raiders to continue to sign more draft picks this week. They are holding their rookie minicamp Friday through Sunday and it will be the first time the none-player Las Vegas draft class gets to work.
Rookies don’t have to be signed by the minicamp, but teams try to get a good amount of their class signed early. The team is also expected to announce their undrafted draft class (which is expected to be consisted of 10-12 players) by the time the minicamp starts.
