The Raiders are set to start something new, calling Las Vegas home now. They bring with them a roster has been put together in Oakland in recent years.

It has been a time of rebuilding for the Raiders during Jon Gruden's second stint with the team. But he and GM Mike Mayock seem confident in the team they have built. With that in mind, here are the three best contracts on the Raiders.

1. Josh Jacobs, RB

Josh Jacobs was an absolute load in the Raiders' backfield as a rookie. He led the team in yards from scrimmage, totaling 1,316 yards with 7 touchdowns. Obviously, this means that Jacobs is still on his rookie contract, paying him $11,933,398 over four seasons, and he should only get better him his second pro season.

2. Maxx Crosby, DE

The Raiders drafted a couple pass rushers last season, but it was fourth-round rookie Maxx Crosby who impressed the most. Crosby led the team with 10 sacks (T-No. 15 in NFL). He also led the team with 14 quarterback hits, which is definitely worth the four-year, $3.3 million contract he is signed to.

3. Darren Waller, TE

Darren Waller was brought in last season, and fantasy owners were cautiously optimistic about him. Converting from wide receiver, Waller is a mismatch nightmare at tight end, and he gave defenses troubles all season long. He led the Raiders with 1,145 receiving yards and 90 receptions. This gives him No. 1 receiver type numbers while being paid just $29.8 million over four years.
