Wimbley agent: "He has a contract and he'll honor it."

The stalemate between the Raiders and outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley remains as such."No calls either way," Wimbley's agent, Joe Linta, told CSNCalifornia.com in an email. "He has a contract and he'll honor it."But will the Raiders?While Oakland has been creating cap space in advance of Tuesday's 1 p.m. PT deadline by virtue of cuts (Stanford Routt, Chris Johnson, Hiram Eugene and reportedly Kevin Boss) and restructured contracts (Carson Palmer, Richard Seymour, Michael Huff and Aaron Curry), the only way the Raiders could save money on Wimbley would be to either have him take a pay cut or release him.RELATED: Raiders closing in on cap compliance
By Linta's quote, it doesn't sound like his client is about to take a pay cut.Besides, 6.5 million of his 11-million base salary for 2012 is already reportedly guaranteed, with the remaining 4.5 million becoming guaranteed on March 17if he is still on the roster on that date.
Also, Wimbley's entire 11 million base salary for 2013 and 2 million of his 10 million salary for 2014 become guaranteed if he is on the roster come Saturday.RELATED: Cutting Wimbley would save Raiders 17.5M
The Raiders cutting Wimbley before that day would save them between 1.9 million and 4.5 million for 2012 cap purposes, depending on prorations, and 17.5 million going forward.

The next Primetime? Carr receives compliment after imitating Neon Deion

Watch out Jalen Richard. You have some competition for your punt returning job.

Okay, not really.

But quarterback Derek Carr got in on the action Tuesday. In a video posted by the Raiders on Twitter, Carr fielded a punt and ran it back to the endzone for a touchdown.

He proceeded to do Deion Sanders' touchdown dance and that elicited a response from the Pro Football Hall of Famer.

"That's 1 of the many reasons why I gots mad love for @derekcarrqb he is the #Truth," Sanders wrote in a quote tweet.

Carr has yet to respond.

Raiders place two on Non-Football Injury List

The Raiders placed two players on the Non-Football Injury List, the team announced on Tuesday.

Linebacker Ben Heeney and tight end Cooper Helfet both count against the 90-man roster.

The Raiders' first team practice of training camp is scheduled for Saturdya.

Heeney was selected in the 5th round of the 2015 draft out of Kansas.

After appearing in 15 games a rookie, he saw action in just four games last season.

Over 23 games for the Seahawks in 2014 and 2015, Helfet caught 25 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns.

He spent time on the Raiders' practice squad last season.
