The Raiders signed fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson on Tuesday morning, meaning he will report to training camp on time.

The quarterback out of Arkansas was impressive during the Raiders offseason program and is expected to challenge Terrelle Pryor for the backup spot behind starter Matt Flynn.

According to the NFL's rookie wage scale, Wilson's contract is mandated to be for four years and should be worth roughly $2.6 million.

While most later-round draft picks signed weeks ago, there was no concern over a prolonged holdout. The rookie wage scale eliminates negotiating power by slotting salaries with draft picks.

With Raiders players scheduled to report to training camp on Wednesday, first-round draft pick DJ Hayden and second-rounder Menelik Watson remain unsigned.
