Report: Justin Ellis agrees to three-year deal with Raiders

By Tyler Bischoff

Last week Jon Gruden laid out some of the deficiencies on the Raiders roster. One highlighted position was interior defensive line.

Gruden and the Raiders have decided at least one defensive tackle was worth bringing back, as Justin Ellis has reportedly agreed to stay in Oakland.

Ellis has appeared in 60 games for the Raiders over the last four seasons. He has made a total of 112 tackles, but has just a half sack to his credit. That half sack came last season, as Ellis started 14 of 16 games for the Raiders.

The Raiders are giving Ellis a significant raise to an average of $5 million per season. Last year (the final year of his rookie deal) Ellis had a cap hit of $1.9 million last season.
