I know this will end up being moved, but I didn't see it anywhere on the boards so I decided to post it. I saw over on ESPN's website that Jerry Rice was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a CONDITIONAL SEVENTH ROUND DRAFT PICK.
Now, I am no football expert, but I think the Raiders got completely bent over here. I know Rice was desperate to leave but come on, it is Jerry Rice, at least make that a guarenteed pick.
I think Oakland is making a mistake. With Collins playing terribly at QB and an o-line who looks like Miami's at times, having that veteran receiver there who knows defense better than most coaches and knows how to sit down in the flat and in between zones and GET OPEN is a struggling QB's best friend.
I know Norv likes the young receivers ther ( Porter, Whitted, Gabriel ) but losing both Brown and Rise within a couple o fmonth is really going to hurt the Raiders even moreso I think.
Raider Nation wishes them both well I am sure. Don't be surprised if Turner is run out of Oakland at the end of this season.
