The Raiders have agreed to terms with OT Jared Gaither, according to Friday a report from a San Francisco Chronicle beat writer.

However, shortly before 6 p.m. Friday, a post on Twitter from the same Chronicle reporter said coach Hue Jackson said that "Gaither (was) just visiting, hasn't agreed to terms yet."

Gaither, 25, checked into the Napa Mariott, Comcast SportsNet's Henry Wofford reported on Twitter.

Gaither stands 6-foot-9 and weighs 340 pounds. The Maryland native is entering his fifth NFL season, having played the first four with the Baltimore Ravens.

He suffered a head injury against the New England Patriots in 2009 that ended his season and caused him to miss the entire 2010 season, although he is expected to be ready for football now.
