Raiders Sign 7th Round CB Jeremy Ware

Michigan State product signs four-year contract with Oakland.

According to a league source, the Oakland Raiders have signed seventh-round cornerback Jeremy Ware to a four-year contract worth $1.852 million dollars.

Ware received a signing bonus of $62,450. A fourth year escalator can increase the total value of his contract to over $2.585 million dollars.

Ware began his college career at South Carolina, where he red-shirted in 2005 before transferring to Michigan State. Ware started 16 of the 25 games he’d play for the Spartans between 2007-09, totaling 84 tackles, 2 quarterback sacks, 1 interception, and 11 pass break-ups. Ware was not invited to 2010 Scouting Combine, but ran a 4.37-40 at Michigan State’s Pro Day on March 17, and displayed a 37.5” vertical leap and 9’10” broad jump.

The 5-10, 184-pound Ware is expected to compete with fifth-round pick Walter McFadden for the Raiders’ fourth cornerback job.

Ware is the fourth of the Raiders' nine picks in the 2010 NFL Draft to sign a contract.
