Report: Texas A&M alumnus Jermaine Eluemunor departs Raiders for NFC in NFL free agency

The Raiders’ 2023 Craig Long Award recipient is departing Las Vegas in NFL free agency for a new home in the NFC on the East Coast.

According to NFL Network national insider Ian Rapoport, Texas A&M alumnus Jermaine Eluemunor has signed a two-year deal worth $14 million with the New York Giants. The eighth-year offensive tackle had been with the Raiders since 2021.

In January, Eluemunor was chosen for the Craig Long Award by the Las Vegas chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America for exemplifying professionalism and collaboration with the media last season. ESPN Raiders beat writer Paul Gutierrez presented Eluemunor with the honor.

The 6-foot-4, 325-pound right tackle was in College Station for three seasons from 2014 to 2016. Eluemunor first started for the Aggies in the 2015 Music City Bowl against Louisville. Before the game, he won the individual hot chicken eating contest at the contest’s welcome party.

Eluemunor was drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He has also suited up for the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars. After being cut by the Jaguars before the 2021 season, Eluemunor signed with Las Vegas.
