Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Breno Giacomini is the front-runner at right tackle.
Giacomini was an absolute disaster as the Texans' right tackle last season, but it sounds like he will be first up as the Raiders look for options to replace Marshall Newhouse. Vadal Alexander and 2017 fourth-rounder David Sharpe should also get a look. Mar 27 - 10:23 AM

Raiders signed OT Breno Giacomini, formerly of the Texans.

Giacomini, 32, was abysmal as the Texans' starting right tackle last year, grading out 83rd among 83 qualified tackles at Pro Football Focus and allowing nine sacks, second most in the NFL. PFF charged Giacomini with 64 QB hurries allowed, most in the league by any offensive lineman by a margin of 15 hurries. The Raiders continue to make head-scratching moves on new coach Jon Gruden's watch.

Texans signed OT Breno Giacomini.

The ex-Jet should be in the mix at right tackle with Chris Clark and fourth-rounder Julie'n Davenport. It's a trouble spot after RT Derek Newton tore both of his patellar tendons last season. Worst case, Giacomini will be much needed depth for the Texans.

The Seattle Post Intelligencer suggests the Seahawks could pursue free agent OT Breno Giacomini.

Giacomini was a two-plus year starter in Seattle before signing with the Jets. The Seahawks could have interest in him as a fallback option at right tackle given his experience in Tom Cable's system. Giacomini is recovering from back surgery but expects to be cleared for training camp.

Jets released OT Breno Giacomini.

The move creates $4.5 million in cap space. Coupled with Nick Folk's release, Giacomini's departure saves the Jets a total of $7.5 million. Going on 32, Giacomini is recovering from back surgery. He's been a liability for years now. He won't be signed as a locked-in starter in free agency. Perhaps his ex-team Seattle will be interested as they pick up the pieces along their offensive line.

Jets RT Breno Giacomini will undergo back surgery Wednesday.

The operation will shave down a herniated disc in Giacomini's back. The procedure carries a four-month recovery, but the Jets will likely take it easy with Giacomini during the offseason program. The right tackle should be ready for training camp.

Jets placed RT Breno Giacomini on injured reserve with a back injury, ending his season.

Giacomini was plagued by back woes all season. He appeared in only five games. Now 31, Giacomini previously hadn't missed a game since 2013, but hasn't been an asset for some time now. Giacomini is signed for $4.5 million next season, but won't be back at that price, if at all.

Jets RT Breno Giacomini (back) has been ruled out for Week 14.

Brent Qvale, who started a game and saw plenty of snaps at right tackle early in the season, will get the nod this week. It is just another blow for a spiraling team.

Jets activated RT Breno Giacomini off the PUP list.

WR Jeremy Butler was waived in a corresponding move. Activating Giacomini suggests he will be active and likely start this week. Giacomini has not been great, but he will be an upgrade on Ben Ijalana.

Jets placed RT Breno Giacomini (back) on the reserve/PUP list.

Giacomini is reportedly making progress, but he'll miss the first six games of the season. Giacomini hadn't missed a start in two years since coming over from the Seahawks. Ben Ijalana should be the primary fill-in.

CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora suggests RT Breno Giacomini (back) could open the season on reserve/PUP.

Giacomini has missed the entire preseason with his back issue. He's reportedly making progress, but the Jets don't have a timetable for his return. Ben Ijalana is the top in-house candidate to replace Giacomini.

Jets coach Todd Bowles admits RT Breno Giacomini (back, PUP) might not be ready for Week 1.

Bowles said the team may have to add a veteran free agent. The market is obviously barren, with Will Beatty the top option. "Retired" Eugene Monroe is also available.
Thu, Aug 25, 2016 04:35:00 PM

Jets RT Breno Giacomini (back, active/PUP) has yet to return to practice.

Giacomini has not seen any work in training camp, and it does not sound like he is particularly close to a return. "He’s getting better," coach Todd Bowles said, "but not this week." It does not sound like Giacomini is a lock to be ready for Week 1, which would be a disaster for one of the thinnest offensive lines in the league. Ben Ijalana and Brent Qvale have worked with the first-team during camp.
Mon, Aug 22, 2016 09:17:00 AM

Jets RT Breno Giacomini is week to week with a back injury.

Giacomini was viewed as a release/bench candidate, but Gang Green didn't add any legitimate competition. The Jets have extremely little tackle depth following the retirement of LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson.
Thu, Jul 28, 2016 05:49:00 PM

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta doesn't believe Jets RT Breno Giacomini is guaranteed to keep his job.

Mehta considers it a "stone-cold lead-pipe lock" that the Jets use an early-round pick on an offensive lineman, and fully expects GM Mike Maccagnan to select multiple blockers in this month's draft. Giacomini was a weak spot on the line last season, getting obliterated in pass protection. Releasing him and saving $3.8 million would allow the Jets to sign their draft class.
