Ahead of the Raiders coveted move to Las Vegas, the franchise is enjoying an extremely busy offseason, locking down several players including Jason Witten, Marcus Mariota, Nelson Agholor and Cory Littleton.

Well, Mike Mayock and Co. struck again on Saturday, inking former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Nick O'Leary to a contract in what looks to be a solid depth signing.

Darren Waller emerged as the Raiders top receiving threat in 2019, so he has the starting tight end role seemingly locked down. The Raiders brought in Witten act as their second tight end, and also have Foster Moreau and Derek Carrier on the roster for 2020.

Witten will be 38-years-old by the start of next season, so there are questions as to whether his age will finally catch up to him this year, so the addition of O'Leary makes sense from a depth perspective.

While the Raiders have not made any overwhelmingly big signings, they have been active in filling holes on the roster and shoring up positions of need. O'Leary may not be the flashiest signing, but he can still play a valuable role for Jon Gruden in the Raiders' debut campaign in Las Vegas.
