(OAKLAND, Cali.) Former Missouri Western standout defensive end has officially locked himself in with the Oakland Raiders for seasons to come.
Bass, the Raiders seventh round pick in April's NFL Draft, signed a four-year contract with Oakland late last week.
The former Griffon was just one of six Raider draft picks to sign.
He is competing for playing time on a defensive line that returns just one starter -- Lamarr Houston -- from a season ago.
Bass began his first mandatory mini camp with the Raiders on Tuesday.
