The Oakland Raiders are reportedly making a push for OL Kelechi Osemele

Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo is reporting that the Raiders are in contact with offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele.

ESPN's Adam Caplan confirmed the report shortly after.

As Caplan noted, Osemele's position would certainly depend on what happens with Donald Penn. If the Raiders are able to keep Penn and then sign Osemele, the 26-year-old offensive lineman would almsot certainly play right guard. But as talks have gone downhill between Penn and the Raiders, it appears he would become the Raiders' new left tackle. 

The former Baltimore Raven has played at every position on the offensive line, a versatility that proves valuable to almost any team, especially the Silver & Black.
