The Oakland Raiders began what should be a spending spree by reaching an agreement with Chiefs starting C Rodney Hudson for a 5-year, $44.5 million contract.

NFL Network reported that the Raiders and Hudson agreed to the deal that will make Hudson one of the highest paid Centers in the NFL.
Hudson was a second-round draft pick by the Chiefs out of Florida State in the 2011 NFL draft and was a suitable backup before becoming their full-time starting C under new head coach Andy Reid in 2013.
Since taking over the starting job, Hudson has been consistently ranked one of the best blockers in the game and has not missed a game. It has helped the Chiefs as well, as they have recorded back-to-back winning seasons for their first time since 2005 and 2006.
The Oakland Raiders need help on the offensive line for the running game, which was among the worst in the NFL in 2014 despite the presence of Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew.
