Enough has been enough. Donald Penn’s holdout is ending. Multiple reports indicate the Raiders’ Pro Bowl left tackle, who has missed all of training camp to date and the first two exhibition games, is ending his self-imposed exile and will return to the team as soon as Tuesday. Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle notes Penn has been seeking a raise from his 2017 salary of $5.95 million, but that the Raiders weren’t going to renegotiate while Penn was absent. By returning to camp, Tafur reported “negotiations might pick up.” Getting Penn back in the offensive lineup means Marshall Newhouse can return to his spot at right tackle, and Vadal Alexander and rookie David Sharpe can get back to work as versatile players able to fill in across the line.
