    I answered that question already as to why it isnt made public yet..The draft...

    Like AADP said...I have a sneaky feeling that the 2 teams have a TWO agreements..One is in case Ted stays at 16 , and the other agreement would be if Ted trades away that pick..

    The compensation would change in each situation..But the results would be Moss to here and a player and picks to the Raiders

    The 2 teams have been talking for longer then people know...And Moss ( or his agent) has dealt with Andrew on getting a new deal done.

    Seems like a lot of speculation. Just too many if's and's and but's for me. The Raiders are not going to wait to see if TT trades away the pick if they want it.

    Al Davis is brilliant, but insane. We know he loves the big armed QB, which Russell certainly is. But a once a generation receiver like Johnson will be awfully hard to pass on. He is the type of receiver who will simply go up and take the ball away from anyone in its vicinity. And as we witnessed in Minny a few years back, you don't need a great QB to get the ball to a guy like this.....just put it up there, and let him go get it. Which makes me believe he might feel compelled to go for Johnson, at which time Moss becomes expendable, and less expensive in terms of trade material.

    This is going to be interesting drama over the next month.

    I don't believe the teams have reached an agreement. I think they're talking. I think the Packers want Moss but they won't give up a 1st and are probably thinking about giving up the 2nd but reluctant to do so. I think the Rodgers for Moss reports are completely false and not happening at all. ESPN Insider has confirmed the Packers are interested in Randy Moss but a deal is not going to happen right away.

    Here is what is said. I only took a paragraph from the report.

    There have been discussions between the Packers and Raiders regarding a Moss trade but, as one Green Bay official told ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli this week: "There have still been more words written about it by [the media] than spoken about it by the people who count the most. There might be some mutual interest, but the difference between being interested and pulling the trigger is still a pretty big one for now."

    To me that sounds like both teams are weighing the options right now.

    The discussion they’re referring to I imagine went something like this.

    Ring, ring….

    Al Davis, “Hello”

    Ted Thompson, “Hi Al, this is Ted Thompson”.

    Al Davis, “Oh, Hi Ted, hey, did you force Favre out of town yet?

    Ted Thompson, “Um…. No Al.”

    Al Davis, “Oh darn, I really need a QB”

    Ted Thompson, “Yeah you do. But I’m calling to find out your intentions on Randy Moss.”

    Al Davis, “Oh, that ungrateful twerp. But, um,… I mean, he’s a great player and I won’t give him up for less than a 1st round draft pick in return.”

    Ted Thompson, “That’s a little steep Al, especially for an aging player with declining numbers”

    Al Davis, “That may be, but I’ve got too much invested in him to let him go for anything less. Except,…….maybe………well, I suppose I could take a 2nd rounder and someone like Aaron Rodgers.”

    Ted Thompson, “Um, no, I don’t think so.”

    Al Davis, “You sure? I really need a QB”.

    Ted Thompson, “Yes, I’m sure. Anybody else you may be interested in?”

    Al Davis, “The only thing left you got that I’d take is a 2nd, a 3rd, and KGB.”

    Ted Thompson, “Um, no I don’t think so. Well, It’s been nice talking to you Al.”

    Click

    Al Davis, “Hey wait, Ted come back! Did I tell you that I’m the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby? Hello,……Hello……"
