Donald Penn caught Raider Nation by surprise by not reporting to Training Camp

Still recovering from the news of the release of Austin Howard yesterday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com announced that Donald Penn didn’t report to training camp.

That is one curveball I wasn’t expecting.

Last year, Pro Football Focus graded Penn out as the twelveth best overall tackle and was given an 86.3 grade. Although he has indeed performed at a high level, it will be difficult to get a long term contract as he will be 34 years old when the 2017 season starts.

On the other hand and even if Penn doesn’t get a new contract, the Raiders can boost his contract just like the New England Patriots did with Rob Gronkowski and Patrick Chung earlier this year.

This news is still in its early development; stay tuned as the Raiders’ Training Camp just got more interesting.
