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.

That, combined with the fact that he's being paid a reported $11 million a year, you'd expect him to play the tackle position.

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. 

Osemele can officially sign the contract tomorrow when free agency officially opens.
