  • Randy Moss, Deal Very Close

    KNBR is reporting that the Raiders and Packers have reached a tentative agreement on compensation for Randy Moss. But the entire thing is contingent upon Moss (and his agent) ability or willingness to restructure his current contract into something the Packers are more comfortable with and can absorb.

    The particulars of the deal weren't discussed, but it has been rumored that the Raiders would get a 2nd round pick in 2007 and an additional pick in 2008.

      yea nothing new here. I would rather we didn't give up anymore than a 3rd, we could throw in KGB to sweeten the pot.

          So weird that Moss could go to GB, where he was a hated and hunted man for so many years.

            I am thrilled about this. Because now there is no way Calvin Johnson falls to Tampa Bay.

                I think this is a bad deal. Why? Has nothing to do with Moss really (at least, not directly). Just that, in giving up their 2nd, they somewhat limit their flexibility if they want to move up in the draft. For example, say Adrian Peterson falls as many still speculate. Green Bay really needs a running back ... but without a 2nd, they'll be hardpressed to shoot up to grab him. Or let's say Adrian Peterson comes off. They'll be a bit more hardpressed to jump before Buffalo to grab Marshawn Lynch (although I guess the first/3rd and another pick could get them into San Francisco's spot). In short, I think it limits their options in the draft.

                  I'd like to see the link, I think it IS the same article from last week.

                    Why is there no way? Raiders still would need a QB, and 2/3 scenarios haven't really changed.

                        I was assuming they were getting Rodgers as part of it. That may or may not be true, so I spoke to soon.

                          wrong. Our GM will never trade up and i mean never. He can simply draft Lynch or trade back get an extra second and draft Olsen. If we have a good passing attack less teams will have 7 ppl in the box which will allow us to run. Good example is the Clots.

                            I cannot remember the last time Ted Thompson traded up in round 1, so I don't know if that was the plan this go around.

                              Preach on, Shiver. Keep CJ out of the NFC South!

                              Unless the Saints draft him.
                              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''
