Lynn Bowden Signs Rookie Contract with the Las Vegas Raiders

It’s official: Lynn Bowden is a Las Vegas Raider.

Saturday afternoon his agent shared the good news on Twitter shortly after the former Wildcat put pen to paper and secured the bag.

Bowden was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft with the No. 80 overall. Specific details of his rookie deal have not been revealed, but he’s projected to make around $4.7 million in the four-year deal with a signing bonus just shy of a $1 million. Not too shabby.

An All-American all-purpose player for the University of Kentucky in 2019, Bowden earned the Paul Hornung Award as college football’s most versatile player. His NFL career will begin at running back for the Raiders.
