Raiders add Marshall Newhouse

The Raiders have fewer needs than usual, but they’re still trying to upgrade the roster via free agency.

The latest arrival is veteran offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, it’s a two-year deal.

A fifth-round pick of the Packers in 2010, Newhouse spent four years in Green Bay, one in Cincinnati, and the last two with the Giants.

He started 14 games in 2015, and six in 2016. He joins an offensive line that underwent a significant upgrade last year with the arrival of Kelechi Osemele. On Friday, Raiders tackle Menelik Watson defected for Denver, creating the need for an extra body on the depth chart.

    Every pick in the draft better be defense

    They also lost (so far) Malcolm Smith.

    But the future for this team is bright, and a few days ago I told my best friend who is a Raiders fan that I thought AP was a good possibility because he could be had relatively cheap.

    McKenzie has a gift opportunity, don’t waste it.

    Nice signing. Good veteran depth player with many starts at every position besides C on his resume. Raiders oline will be very good again this year.

    This years FA period has been a dud for Raider fans.

    minisoda’s GM slick prick speildobe must have been watching gay porn or ap highlights (they’re the same thing in minisoda) to let another ex-Packer slip thru his Vasoline coated hands.

    Giants should have kept him over John jerry

    Yikes. I feel sorry for Derek Carr. Let’s hope Derek can read defenses as fast as Eli Manning can OR Newhouse never sees any significant playing time. Otherwise, here comes another injury for this talented young QB.

    Marshall was a stand up guy for the Giants, despite getting overly criticized as the ‘cover boy’ for all that was wrong with the OL. He worked hard and didn’t say anything bad. GOOD LUCK in LA, to the guy I called “Marshall Tucker Band”.

    Marshall had some misfortune in Green Bay with injuries but still, he just never materialized. Matter of fact, “turnstile” comes to mind immediately.

    I was actually surprised last year to see he was still in the league.

    its all good, at the end of the day this free agency group was pretty mid level players who have all been over paid. The way o-linemen are getting paid in this free agency, this is tremendous value. I trust Reggie. I think we could use some push up the middle on the d-line, but what I am hearing is that Ward is ready to make a big impact this year (along with Mario Edwards Jr.). He has been working out every day. So rotation of Jelly bean, Ward, Latham and…Dan Williams (?) -(I am not so sure about him although based on last year- he better show up in shape this year)

    Raiders can sign guys now for value on 1 to 2 years deal. The money some of these guys got paid for their past performance has been a bit of a surprise- the Mike Conley’s of the NFL.

    You feel sorry for a guy who has Penn, Osemele, Hudson, Jackson, and Howard, and all of their draft picks in this year draft. Your right I do have tears, tears of joy that is.

    Go Raiders….keep adding depth.

    Still waiting to see where the Raiders sign up some defensive help. The secondary was horrendous last year and now that Aldon Smith has proven he can’t get it through his thick skull that sobriety is a good thing, we need a defensive lineman too. Hopefully the draft is good to us this year

    The draft is SUPER deep on defense. Raiders don’t need much, and what they do need can be addressed in the first 5 rounds of the draft.
