The Jets began the run-up to this week's free-agent frenzy by bolstering Sam Darnold's enforcers up-front by trading for Raiders guard Kelechi Osemele.

The Jets have reportedly picked up a sizable reinforcement for their offensive line.

The Raiders will also include a sixth-round pick in the trade to the Jets in exchange for a fifth-round pick, according to the Oakland Tribune's Jerry McDonald. The Jets ranked 29th in the National Football League last season in yard per rush (4.0).

New York, which entered the offseason with question marks on its offensive line at center and left guard, is re-signing Jonotthan Harrison, who started the final seven games at center when Spencer Long struggled with injuries and consistency.

Osemele is due to make a little over $20 million over the next two seasons which is a significant cap hit but will be well worth it if he plays at the level he has in the past.
