The Oakland Raiders’ three-day trade talks with the Seattle Seahawks are ending with quarterback Matt Flynn being sent to Oakland on exchange for two draft picks.
It appears details are still coming in. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the picks are in the 2014 draft and a conditional pick in the 2015 draft. It is being reported that Flynn also reworked his contract.
Oakland also is reportedly trying to trade quarterback Carson Palmer to Arizona for a late-round pick.
Flynn, who turns 28 in June, has started two NFL games. He was signed by Seattle last year to be the starter. But the team drafted Russell Wilson in the third round and he won the starting job over Flynn.
I will have more thoughts on this trade upcoming.
