The Raiders now truly have the makings of one of the top offensive lines in the NFL.

The NFL Network reported early Wednesday that Donald Penn will re-sign with the team after he scratched his plans to visit the New York Giants. The San Francisco Chronicle was the first to report to sides were close to finalizing an agreement.

Penn had long maintained his desire to remain with the Raiders to help finish off a turnaround he felt had been brewing the past two years.

“When I got to the Raiders I told them I wanted to turn things around and I feel like I haven’t finished that yet,” Penn said during a studio visit to the NFL Network at the start of free agency. “We’re going to see if the Raiders are going to give me an opportunity to finish that.”

The terms of Penn’s deal have not been announced. He earned $10.4 million over the past two years with the Raiders and was looking to get a raise from that salary after starting all 32 games and anchoring Oakland’s line at left tackle.

With Penn back in place, the Raiders can use newly signed Kelechi Osemele at his stronger position of guard. A line of Penn, Osemele, center Rodney Hudson and guard Gabe Jackson is an imposing one, with Austin Howard and Menelik Watson (assuming he returns well from his Achilles injury) to handle right tackle.
