Reports: Mike Brisiel signs with Raiders

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 16, 2012 – 5:07 pm

According to multiple reports, Texans free agent right guard Mike Brisiel has signed with the Oakland Raiders.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter. Brisiel’s agent, Jeff Sperbeck, tweeted “Congrats to #MikeBrisiel of @thenovoagency who’s about to become the newest @Raiders.” And Brisiel told Mark Berman of FOX 26 Sports that he has agreed to a five-year deal, which Berman says is worth about $20 million.

“I’m excited, I am,” Brisiel said, according to Berman. “It’s going to be a new chapter in my life. So it’s going to be exciting.”

Raiders offensive line coach Frank Pollack coached Brisiel in Houston from 2007-11, and Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp was the Texans’ quarterbacks coach for the last two seasons.

The Texans signed Brisiel as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State in 2006. After getting cut twice and spending the spring of 2007 in NFL Europe, Brisiel started 47 games over the last five seasons. He consistently graded out as one of the Texans’ top linemen when healthy, although he missed 18 games due to injuries from 2009-11. Brisiel routinely played through injuries, including last season in Week 14 at Cincinnati, when he played the entire second half with a broken leg.

“It’s sad [to leave the Texans],” Brisiel said, per Berman. “It’s one of those things that I thank them for everything, giving me the opportunity, sticking with me through some rough times. I couldn’t be more happy about the way (last) season happened and I [will] always be one of those Texans’ diehards at heart.”

UPDATE: The Raiders have officially announced that Brisiel is a Raider.
