The Raiders have added some young offensive tackle depth.

The club has been awarded Emmett Cleary on waivers from Tampa Bay, the team said Wednesday.

In a corresponding roster move, the Raiders waived wide receiver David Gilreath, a first-year pro from Wisconsin.

The 24-year-old Cleary spent the majority of the 2013 regular season on the Buccaneers’ practice squad. He also had a stint with the Colts, with whom he entered the NFL last spring. The Colts waived Cleary with an injury settlement in September.

Cleary played collegiately at Boston College (2009-2012), earning starting roles at right tackle and left tackle.

    His best chance to make the team is at Quarterback.

    Gilreath is not a first year pro, he’s been with Pittsburgh and Buffalo, at least…and he was last in the NFL back in 2012. (I think he played in a game for the Steelers.)

    He’s a Raider now. He’s got his foot in the door and now it’s up to him to fight for a roster spot.

    Maybe you should explain that to him. There aren’t that many available jobs in the league, and the Raiders pay with US dollars like every other team.
