Raiders Agree to Terms with Veteran OL Breno Giacomini

Veteran tackle Breno Giacomini was added to the mix of Raiders’ offensive lineman, signing a contract Thursday of which terms were not disclosed, Jerry McDonald of Bay Area News Group reports.

The move will shore up the Raiders offensive line as they get ready for the 2018 season, and don’t forget to get the latest odds on next year’s showcase to see how the move will help the Raiders.

The 32-year-old is a 10-year veteran who started all 16 games at right tackle for the Houston Texans last season and figures to challenge for the spot vacated on the right side with the release of Marshall Newhouse, who was let go from the team last week.

Giacomini was a fifth-round choice by the Green Bay Packers in 2008 when general manager Reggie McKenzie was a personnel executive there, and the linemen played for the Packers through 2009 before joining the Seattle Seahawks in 2010, the New York Jets in 2014 and finally the Houston Texans last season.

The line coach for Giacomini from 2011 through 2013 in Seattle was Tom Cable, hired to coach the Raiders line this season.

At 6-foot-7, 320 pounds, Giacomini has played in 94 games with 86 starts, 53 of those coming in the last four seasons. It should be interesting to see how he performs with the Raiders this coming season.
