The Raiders are well-stocked at tight end. Like, doomsday-prepper style.

They added another talent to a crowded group on Saturday afternoon, agreeing on terms of a contract with Nick O’Leary. His agency reported the news.

O’Leary spent last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins after a trade. He has been a reserve in his career, and it’s fair to wonder if he’ll have a roster spot with the Raiders.

The Silver and Black definitely will have Darren Waller, Foster Moreau and Jason Witten on the roster next year. Derek Carrier’s under contract and is a glue guy and core special teams player worthy of employment.

NFL teams typically carry three tight ends, maybe four if one’s a quality special teamer, on the roster. Moreau suffered a knee injury late in the 2019 season and O’Leary could be an option if the LSU product isn’t quite ready to start the season.

It might be tough to make the squad if Moreau is ready to go. Last year’s fourth-round pick is a versatile talent. Waller’s an elite receiving target and Witten’s a future Hall of Famer who isn’t what he once was but still has some juice left. Carrier’s a quality reserve and rounds out a position group that’s as strong as any on the roster.
