Raiders Sign First-Round S Karl Joseph To A Four-Year Deal

The Oakland Raiders announced Monday night that they have agreed to terms with first-round S Karl Joseph.

Joseph, 21, was taken with the No. 14 overall pick by the Raiders. Joseph unfortunately suffered a torn right ACL last year, but that didn’t prevent him from being a first-round pick. In fact, there was talk that others like the Redskins would have drafted him in round one had he gotten past the Raiders.

According to OverTheCap.com, Joseph receives a four-year contract worth $11,884,316 to go along with a signing bonus of $6,843,140. The contract will include a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2019.

During his four years at West Virginia, Joseph recorded 274 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss, two sacks, nine interceptions, three forced fumbles, five recoveries and seven pass defenses.
