The Las Vegas Raiders added some depth for their offensive line on Monday by re-signing veteran Patrick Omameh.
He played six games for the Raiders last season. Omameh — who is 6’4 and 327 pounds — also played one game for the rival Kansas City Chiefs in 2020. He now has a chance to make the team in Las Vegas as a backup swing guard/tackle.
I’d expect Omameh to be a bubble player and will likely be one of the final decisions as the Raiders make their initial 53-man roster in early September. The Raiders like Omameh’s experience and that could help him secure a roster spot this season because the offensive line in Las Vegas is young at some areas. He could add some leadership.
Omameh is entering this ninth NFL season. The Michigan product has played from the San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants and New Orleans Saints. Omameh has started 58 games in the NFL.
The Raiders’ roster is now at the 90-man limit. Omameh takes the spot that was created Friday when the Raiders released defensive end David Irving.
