The Las Vegas Raiders have agreed to a three-year contract extension with offensive tackle Kolton Miller, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

The deal is reportedly worth more than $18 million per year and features $42.6 million in guaranteed money.

Miller had one year remaining on his rookie contract plus a fifth-year team option for 2022, so the current deal keeps him under team control through 2025.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network provided more details on the new deal:

$18.005M new money average $18.505M new money max $42.6M guaranteed Big payday for Kolton Miller, who has developed into one of the NFL's better tackles. https://t.co/dwds55ePMQ

The new deal puts Miller among the top five in the NFL in average annual salary among offensive tackles, per Spotrac.

The 2018 first-round pick immediately became a reliable option anchoring the offensive line for Las Vegas, starting all 32 regular-season games at left tackle during his first two years.

He remained a starter in 2020 but missed two games because of an ankle injury.

Miller is still a difference-maker when healthy, grading out as the 10th-best pass-blocking tackle in the NFL last year, per Pro Football Focus. The Raiders only allowed 28 sacks as a team in 2020, 10th-fewest in the league.

A long-term deal for the left tackle provides the offense with stability moving forward despite going four years without a playoff berth.
