Penn is due to earn $5.8 million this season, but wants to be paid like a top-10 left tackle, which he graded as in 2016, according to Pro Football Focus.
The Raiders recently made Derek Carr the highest-paid player in football with a five-year deal worth $125 million. When Carr signed, he touted that his contract was structured to allow the Raiders to pay his supporting cast.
Penn is likely seeking to test whether that’s true.
