As of Friday, the Oakland Raiders still possess over $18 million in cap space, per Over The Cap.

However, that figure is misleading as it does not include Raiders guard Gabe Jackson’s new extension, or two more draft picks Oakland still must sign that will cost around $4 million in total. Jackson signed a five-year, $56 million contract, $26 million guaranteed and an average annual salary of $11.2 million, per SpoTrac.

Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley should be expected to get around $3 million per year, based upon the players’ contracts around him and Raiders safety Obi Melfinowu should get around $800,000 based upon Houston Texans linebacker Zach Cunningham’s contract.
