This deal can eclipse $3 million if Mayowa hits certain incentives. Mayowa had a respectable 2018 season with 38 tackles and four sacks over 15 games with the Cardinals. He'll initially slot in behind Josh Mauro at defensive end with the Raiders.
Mayowa is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks due to back and neck injuries, Gregg Bell of TheNewsTribune.com reports.
Mayowa was unable to practice throughout the week after apparently suffering back and neck injuries in a loss to the Rams this past Sunday. Starting defensive end Chandler Jones could see a major workload Sunday if Mayowa and Markus Golden (ankle) are kept to the sideline.
Mayowa had three solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Rams.
Mayowa made his presence known early as he jarred the ball loose from QB Jared Goff less than three minutes into the game. The 27-year-old played 24 of 68 defensive snaps Sunday as he continues to serve in a rotational role at defensive end.
Mayowa tallied two tackles and one sack during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Mayowa came up with a big sack on quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but he otherwise didn't do much to help stop the Chiefs' high-powered offense. That sack also marked his first since Week 2, and since that point, Mayowa has been averaging just 2.7 tackles per game. In other words, don't look to him for IDP production.
