Raiders confirm Khalif Barnes deal

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have officially announced a one-year deal to bring back free agent offensive lineman Khalif Barnes.

The team made the announcement on Thursday, a day after Barnes' agent said the two sides had agreed on a contract that could pay Barnes up to $2 million this season.

After spending most of his first two years with the Raiders as a reserve, Barnes started all 16 games at right tackle last year.

The Raiders signed guard Mike Brisiel to a four-year deal worth almost $20 million last week and brought back recently released guard Cooper Carlisle this week as they put together their offensive line.
