UPDATE: Tyrell Williams signs with Raiders for 4 years, $44M

New, comments

This will be good for the Chargers next draft season

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The numbers are out for Tyrell Williams’ deal with the Oakland Raiders.

We had thought that Tyrell was going to get somewhere around $10M/per year, he wound up with $11M/per year and could be worth almost $12M/per. Those are good numbers for the Chargers when it comes to compensation pick calculations.

For comparison, last year the Baltimore Ravens lost their Center Ryan Jensen to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a 4 year, $42M contract with $22M guaranteed. Almost identical numbers to the Tyrell Williams deal in Oakland. The Ravens were granted a 3rd round comp pick this year.

Now, the comp pick calculations are still somewhat a mystery, so predicting them isn’t an exact science, but looking at this year’s comp picks, it’s a pretty safe bet the Chargers will wind up with AT LEAST an extra 4th round pick next year, and possibly an extra 3rd rounder. Unless they go make a big splash signing that cancels out the loss of Tyrell, however that would be very uncharacteristic.
