Las Vegas Raiders and Henry Ruggs agree on contract

The Las Vegas Raiders and Henry Ruggs, the fastest player in this year’s draft class, have agreed to terms. Ruggs turned heads with a 4.27-second time in the 40-yard dash.

Thanks to an excellent NFL Scouting Combine workout and circulation of his highlight tape from Alabama and his high school days, his draft stock soared just before the draft, Ruggs was the 12th overall pick in the 2020 draft.

Both sides agreed to a four-year contract worth $16.67 million guaranteed, and the team has a fifth-year option.
