FoxSports.com is reporting the buyback provision in Kamerion Wimbley’s original six-year contract could violate the NFL’s 30 percent rule when it comes to pay raises.
Quoting Wimbley’s agent, Joe Linta, earlier today, FoxSports (via Adam Caplan) reported Wimbley had been informed of the Raiders exercising a $3.5 million buyback to retain his services through the 2011 season.
If there is a problem with the buyback, it could temporarily make Wimbley a free agent, although indications are both the team and player are interested in working things out and having him in Oakland in 2011.
