Former LSU offensive lineman Vadal Alexander signed a four-year contract with the Oakland Raiders worth $2.4 million, including a signing bonus of $76,844, a source told The Advocate.
Alexander, a four-year starter at LSU and seventh-round draft pick earlier this month, will make an average of more than $600,000 over the duration of the deal. The Raiders announced Alexander’s signing Monday but did not release contract details.
Alexander becomes the fourth LSU draftee to sign with his team. Deion Jones, a second-round pick, signed a four-year, $4.5 million contract with the Falcons. Jalen Mills, a seventh-round selection, signed a four-year, $2.4 million contract with the Eagles, according to PhillyVoice.com. Rashard Robinson, dismissed from LSU’s team after the 2014 season, signed with the San Francisco 49ers, according to a tweet from the team.
Jerald Hawkins, a fourth-round pick with the Steelers, has yet to sign. Several others have signed undrafted free agent deals, including linebacker Lamar Louis (Cardinals), tight end Dillon Gordon (Eagles) and snapper Reid Ferguson (Bills).
