According to Mike Garafalo of NFL Network, Mariota is set to make a pretty nice chunk of change, as his contract with the Raiders will pay him $17.6 million over two years, with $7.5 million being guaranteed in the first year.

However, the contract is loaded with incentives that could bring the total value up big time if he becomes a starter.

Granted, the base salary isn’t as much as Mariota made in 2020 (it was upwards of $20 million) but with all of those incentives thrown in there, he stands to make a significant amount of money if all goes well.

There are many out there who believe the Raiders’ current starter, Derek Carr, is vulnerable, which gives Mariota a chance to gain a starting job at some point in 2020 if Carr falters.

There’s no question this was a move made to push Carr, and the host of incentives in Mariota’s deal only furthers that notion.

It also helps that both Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock were big fans of the Oregon product when he was coming out of college, so both won’t hesitate to pull the trigger on putting him in.
