The Raiders have gotten their replacement for former TE Zach Miller. Today the club agreed to terms with Giants free agent tight end Kevin Boss. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Boss’ four-year deal is worth $16 million.
A fifth-round pick (157th overall) out of Western Oregon in 2007, Boss has 119 receptions for 1,600 yards and 18 touchdowns during his career, with most of that production coming as a full-time starter over the last three seasons.
The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Boss replaces Miller, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract with the Seahawks earlier this week. Miller’s contract contains $17 million in guaranteed money, a figure the cap-strapped Raiders were unable to match.
