Raiders, Damon Arnette agree to rookie deal

The Las Vegas Raiders have come to an agreement with the second of the team’s two 2020 first-round picks, locking up former Ohio State standout CB Damon Arnette to a four-year deal that features a team-option for the fifth year per league source.

The 6-foot, 195-pound cornerback out of Ohio State, was selected 19th overall by the Raiders in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Arnette appeared in 53 games during his time with the Buckeyes from 2015-19, totaling 140 tackles (104 solo), five interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 27 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Arnette was a three-time All-Big Ten selection while helping the program reach the College Football Playoffs two times in 2016 and 2019.

As a senior in 2019, Arnette played in 13 games and earned second-team All-Big Ten honors. He posted 35 tackles (27), registered one interception that was returned for a touchdown and also forced one fumble.

A native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Arnette attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School and helped the program capture a 7A State Championship as a senior in 2014. He was named a four-star prospect by ESPN and earned honorable mention All-Defensive team honors on Broward County’s Class 8A-7A-6A list.
