Newly-signed Tony Bergstrom is expected to play center for the Texans.
Bergstrom is a versatile lineman, but he spent most of last season at center for the Raiders. "I feel really comfortable there," he said. "Honestly, I've felt pretty comfortable at every position. I come in right now thinking center first in my mind, but more than anything, I want to fill whatever need this team has." After losing Ben Jones in free agency, the Texans have a hole to fill at center. Bergstrom should be given the first crack at the job. Mar 15 - 9:32 AM

Texans signed G/C Tony Bergstrom, formerly of the Raiders, to a two-year, $5.75 million contract.

The 95th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Bergstrom never found his footing in Oakland, starting just four games in four seasons. He did hold his own in three spot starts last year, seeing action at both guard and center. Although they did land Jeff Allen, the Texans have question marks on the interior line after losing RG Brandon Brooks and C Ben Jones in free agency.

The San Francisco Chronicle believes 2012 third-round pick Tony Bergstrom is "in real danger of being cut" in 2014 training camp.

Bergstrom was Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie's first-ever draft pick, selected at No. 95 overall in '12. He played in nine games as a rookie, starting one, and missed all of 2013 with a "significant" foot injury. Bergstrom was drafted for Oakland's old zone-blocking scheme. They've since switched to power blocking.

Raiders placed LG Tony Bergstrom on injured reserve with a "significant" foot injury, ending his season.

The NFL's worst offensive line loses another starter. Bergstrom suffered the injury in Oakland's preseason finale, in which he shouldn't even have been playing. The Raiders will open the season with a starting front five of LT Menelik Watson, LG Lucas Nix, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Mike Brisiel, and RT Khalif Barnes.

Raiders LG Tony Bergstrom suffered a "significant" foot injury in Thursday's preseason finale, and is out indefinitely.

Yet another blow for the overmatched Raiders. Lucas Nix will now slide in at left guard, with Mike Brisiel remaining at right guard. A 2012 third rounder, Bergstrom is already 27 years old. He appeared in nine games as a rookie, making one start. He'll be verging toward "bust" status if he misses all of 2013.

Raiders 2012 third-round pick Tony Bergstrom opened OTAs as the team's starting left guard.

A college tackle, Bergstrom was Oakland's first selection in the 2012 draft, where they lacked both first- and second-round picks. He earned just over 100 snaps as a rookie. New OL coach Tony Sparano was reportedly "high" on Bergstrom coming out of Utah. He's giving him the first look to replace Cooper Carlisle.

Raiders agreed to terms with third-round OG Tony Bergstrom on a four-year contract.

The 95th overall pick, Bergstrom auditioned at left guard during rookie camp and could push for the starting job, competing with over-the-hill Cooper Carlisle. Bergstrom was mostly a tackle in college, so he's learning a new position. He's still considered a strong fit for the Raiders' zone-blocking scheme.

The Raiders used third-round pick Tony Bergstrom at left guard during rookie minicamp.

A college tackle, Bergstrom could unseat Cooper Carlisle for a starting job. "He's done a nice job," coach Dennis Allen said of Bergstrom. "He fits the scheme, the zone-running scheme and he has some athleticism. He’ll be a nice fit."

Raiders selected Utah OG Tony Bergstrom with the No. 95 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Bergstrom played both tackle spots as a three-year starter at Utah, but he's ticketed for the interior in Oakland after impressing at guard in the Senior Bowl. The Raiders will likely try to develop him as the successor to 34-year-old LG Cooper Carlisle.
