The Raiders on Thursday extended right guard Gabe Jackson for five years at $56 million.

The news comes one week after the team locked up quarterback Derek Carr with the richest deal in National Football League history in terms of annual salary.

Jackson is the second prominent member of Oakland's stellar 2014 draft class to get a lucrative extension this offseason.

Sears to close another 20 stores
In an email, a Sears spokesman said the stores will close in mid-September and the Sears Auto Centers will close in late July. The 20 closings bring the company's total so far this year to 236, or roughly 17% of the stores it had in January.

"We figured out a way to do it", Carr said, "so that we have the opportunity to sign the other guys that I think are important to this organization".

Mack is under contract for this season and next. The $25 million per year he will now earn is a huge number.

According to this latest piece of news, it looks like Carr was looking out for Jackson, and took less money so the Raiders could do both deals. Given the team's current cap situation, Rapoport reported that the Raiders will focus on a new deal in 2018 for the superstar pass rusher. The former Alabama receiver has over 2,000 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in his first two seasons since the Raiders drafted him. Jackson came a round later and has started 44 games over his first three seasons on the league. McKenzie prefers to draft, develop and reward homegrown talent, and the 2014 third-round pick should be next in line to do so. Jackson was a Pro Bowl alternate alongside Pro Bowlers Osemele, centre Rodney Hudson, and left tackle Donald Penn on the Raiders' offensive line.
