ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders added their first free agent of the league year, agreeing to a two-year deal with former New York Giants offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse.
A person familiar with the deal said Newhouse has agreed to the contract Friday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been signed. NFL Network first reported the deal.
After being extremely active in free agency the past two offseasons, the Raiders have not been nearly as aggressive this year after winning 12 games last season to make the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
They lost several of their own players on the first two days of free agency before adding the versatile Newhouse for depth on the offensive line.
