Raiders' Donald Penn Holding Out For New Contract

The Oakland Raiders will release right tackle Austin Howard

The Oakland Raiders will release right tackle Austin Howard

According to Spotrac, Penn has a cap hit of $7.1 million in 2017 that includes a $5.8 million base salary.

Entering his 12th National Football League season, Penn's holdout neatly corresponds with contract extensions for Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and guard Gabe Jackson in June.

Lululemon athletica inc. (NASDAQ:LULU) Director Buys 97728 Shares of Stock
Institutional investors and hedge funds own 79.94% of the company's stock. 215,803 are owned by Everpoint Asset Mngmt. The Winslow Capital Management Llc holds 2.93 million shares with $190.50 million value, up from 2.29M last quarter.

Howard had started 39 of 40 games played with the Raiders over the last three seasons.

Penn gave up just one sack during the 2016 season, unfortunately for the Pro Bowl tackle, it resulted in a season-ending injury for Carr. Clearly, the man is vital to the offense. The cornerback joins the club in time for Saturday's first full-squad practice of training camp.

Spirit Realty Capital, (SRC) Cut to Sell at BidaskClub
Toronto Dominion Bank acquired a new stake in Spirit Realty Capital during the first quarter worth approximately $141,000. The company had revenue of $163.19 million during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $169.84 million.

The Raiders are all-in for the 2017 season after snapping a 13-year playoff drought, but will likely need their anchor on the offensive line if they hope to compete for a Super Bowl.

Going into the final year, and given his importance to the offense, Penn has a point.

One aspect of the sanctions Trump is not likely to appreciate is the limit on his ability to end the sanctions on Russian Federation .

That is, unless their plans involve letting Penn walk next offseason in the first place.
