RENTON, Wash. - The agent for offensive lineman Robert Gallery says his client is leaving the Oakland Raiders and signing with the Seattle Seahawks.

Rick Smith tells The Associated Press that Gallery has agreed to a three-year deal with the Seahawks. Gallery can't sign his contract with Seattle until Friday.

Gallery will be reunited with former Oakland head coach Tom Cable, who was hired following last season as the Seahawks' assistant head coach with the charge of revamping Seattle's run game and blocking schemes. Gallery also solidifies the Seahawks' re-made offensive line, which will likely feature three new starters.

Gallery was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2004 draft by the Raiders. He struggled as a left tackle but flourished when he was moved inside to left guard.

ESPN.com first reported Gallery's deal with Seattle.
