SAN DIEGO -– Offensive lineman Khalif Barnes is playing his sixth straight season with the Raiders. Each one has been navigated without security. He’s been employed on a series of one-year contracts, including a 2014 deal worth $1.85 million.
On Saturday, he agreed to terms on a pact for next season. The Raiders offered a one-year contract extension for next season, a team spokesman confirmed.
Contract details were not immediately known.
Barnes has proven a valuable commodity over the years. The career offensive tackle been a jack of all trades in recent seasons, moving inside to guard when required.
He’ll play there a second straight time on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers with left guard Gabe Jackson out due to a knee injury. He made four starts at right tackle until Menelik Watson took the reigns, a transition that came without complaint.
Barnes is expected to fill a similar role next season as the first man off the bench, more than capable of sliding in everywhere save center.
