The top-selected Tiger of the 2019 NFL draft signed his rookie contract on Tuesday.

Clelin Ferrell and the Oakland Raiders announced the deal for the No. 4 overall pick, which is projected in the neighborhood of $31.3 million with a $20.7 million signing bonus.

He had a message for Raiders fans shortly after:

Ferrell totaled 166 stops over three seasons, with 50 for loss with 27 sacks.

He earned multiple All-American honors and picked up the Ted Hendricks Award for the nation's top defensive end last season.

D-line teammates and first-round picks Christian Wilkins (Miami; $15.4M) and Dexter Lawrence (New York Giants; $13.2M) recently wrapped up their deals as well.
