It has been rumored for weeks and today, those rumors became reality.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Oakland Raiders have come to a terms with former New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss on a four-year, $16 million deal.

Boss will be the starter with the Raiders – replacing Pro Bowl tight end Zach Miller, who signed with the Seahawks on Tuesday.

The Giants made Boss their 5th round pick in the 2007 NFL draft. Boss became a valuable asset in the Giants passing game over the past 3 seasons.

Last year, he had 35 catches for 531 yards and 5 touchdowns. His most memorable catch was a 45-yard reception in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl XLII win over the previously undefeated New England Patriots.

The Giants likely replacement for Boss is Ben Patrick. New York signed the former Arizona Cardinals tight end earlier this week.  However, Patrick doesn’t have the same receiving skills as Boss does. Travis Beckum, a third-year veteran, will also compete for the starting tight end job in training camp.
