Oakland Raiders and WR Juron Criner Agree to Four-Year Contract
Stuart Kovacs – Jul 29, 2012
The Oakland Raiders have finally signed their fifth round draft pick Juron Criner to a contract, according to the team’s official site.
Although the amount of money Criner will be paid is unknown, ProFootballTalk reports that the contract is for four years.
The wide receiver was taken with pick number 33 in the fifth round, which means that he was a supplemental draft pick.
The fact that Criner wasn’t taken in the top 32 picks of that round led to a contract dispute between the two sides up until now.
Criner, who attended the University of Arizona, has stood out during the Raiders’ OTA’s. His impact on the coaching staff made fellow wide receiver Louis Murphy expendable, which eventually led to Murphy being traded to the Carolina Panthers.
The terms of Criner’s contract are not yet completely known. Raider Nation Times will closely monitor the situation and provide updates when available.
