Whitehead intends to sign a contract with Oakland, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Whitehead is coming off of a strong 2017 season in which he lead the Lions in tackles with 110, including a sack. He was one of the best linebackers in the NFL and the Raiders will be hoping the 27-year-old -- who can play both on the inside and outside -- keeps up the run of strong play. Per the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Whitehead's new contract is a three-year pact worth more than $6 million annually.
