Rapoport says that Buffalo is looking to bolster their offensive line depth after trading away LT Cordy Glenn last week.
This is the first reported interest in Newhouse since he recently became available.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Newhouse to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.
Newhouse, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. He spent three years with the Packers before signing a one-year contract with the Bengals back in March of 2013.
Newhouse spent a few years with the Giants before agreeing to a two-year, $3.5 million contract $1.55 million in 2017. He was set to make a base salary of $1.55 million for the 2018 season when the Raiders recently released him in a move that freed up $2,250,000 of available cap space.
In 2017, Newhouse appeared in 14 games for the Raiders and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 65 offensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.
