HENDERSON (AP) — Darren Waller has become many things since joining the Raiders organization.

A well-rounded tight end, a leader on and off the field, an inspiration to his teammates and fans, and now, a bargain.

When Kansas City’s Travis Kelce and San Francisco’s George Kittle signed big contract extensions last week, Las Vegas was elated with the four-year, $29.8 million contract they have with Waller.

“We think he’s a superstar,” coach Jon Gruden said.
