The Raiders on Tuesday signed veteran offensive tackle Alex Barron, marking their first foray into bolstering the offensive side of the ball since the 2012 season ended.

Barron, 30, last played in the NFL in 2010, as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. He missed the 2011 season with a knee injury and failed to make it past training camp with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012.

Barron, 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds, has started 75 of the 87 games he appeared in during his six-year NFL career. He is versatile enough to play on the left or right side of the offensive line.
