Before we call it a night, here is an update on the Matt Flynn trade situation.
Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports that all lines of communication still open in the Flynn trade between the teams and the quarterback, and that “everything is still alive.”
A deal to send Flynn from the Seahawks to the Raiders is expected to be finalized soon.
That will likely result in the departure of Carson Palmer from Oakland, and speculation is that he will be dealt to Arizona.
SI’s Peter King believes the Raiders will receive a fourth or fifth round pick in exchange for Palmer from the Cardinals. King also thinks the Raiders will acquire Flynn from the Seahawks for “a mid-round pick in 2014, then perhaps a conditional pick in 2015, based on Flynn’s performance with the Raiders.”
