Jay Glazer of Fox Sports is reporting via Twitter that the Oakland Raiders are nearing a trade deal with the Cincinnati Bengals that would send QB Carson Palmer to Oakland for a 2012 first-round draft pick and a future conditional pick.
Glazer says the deal is expected to be completed by today’s NFL trade deadline.
Chris Mortenson of ESPN.com is reporting that the conditional pick could become a 2013 first-rounder.
The Raiders are already without their second, third and fourth-round draft picks in 2012. While they are expected to receive some compensatory picks for the loss of players like Nnamdi Asomugha and Zach Miller to free agency, it appears the Raiders are going to try to win and win now.
So when all is said and done, the Raiders could end up losing two first-round picks for Carson Palmer?
This is hilarious. Are we sure Al Davis is really dead?
