After a quite first two days of free agency, finally a report of the Raiders signing someone. They have agreed to terms on a 2-year deal with former Giants offensive tackle, Marshall Newhouse according to Ian Rapoport.

Newhouse is a former 5th round pick by the Packers in 2010, while Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie was in the Packers front office. He spent three seasons in Green Bay, the first two as a starting left tackle, and the final as a reserve at right tackle.
From there he played a season in Cincinnati before spending the past two seasons with the Giants as a fulltime starting right tackle in 2015 and bouncing between right tackle and left guard last season, with six starts in ten games.
Not a flashy signing to be certain. He joins Austin Howard and Vadal Alexander in a competition at the right tackle position. Though Howard’s due to make $6.4 million, so his job is not entirely secure at this moment.
