    Apparently the Moss trade is being held up by a conditional pick that will be based on Rodgers performance in 2008.

    Rodgers isn't going to be traded. PFT is chasing a ghost there. ESPN confirmed Rodgers wasn't apart of the deal as did the Milwaukee Journal. In fact the Milwaukee Journal has stated the Raiders are intrigued by KGB and Corey Williams. I find it a tad ironic that PFT comes out with a report a day after John Clayton says if a deal does happen, it won’t happen for another week.

    I will fall over dead if this deal hinges on Rodgers or MORE compensation should he not perform.

    Al Davis knows he is not going to get a #1 pick, previous or future, period.

    When you bring Rodgers name into this deal it gets way to risky for both sides to make any sense what so ever.

    To many things need to happen. Such as agreement on compensation. Restructuring Moss' contract.

    Actually this whole thing makes a ton of sense, even though ESPN (they are never wrong:)) says it won't happen. Davis saves face in retrieving a former 1st round pick in Rodgers, plus a future pick and frees him up to select Calvin Johnson which hands down is the best talent in this draft. Rids himself of a problem child on the team and moves on. Why would he want KGB? The Raiders D was pretty stout last year most of the time:)

    How do we know if ESPN or JS correct? Tightlipped Ted isn't talking at all:)

    PL no he didn't say it was going to happen. He says they are talking though but nothing more at this point.

    How does Rodgers to Oakland make sense? When the Packers have stated they aren't trading Aaron Rodgers. When the Raiders have stated they don't want Aaron Rodgers.

    ESPN has far better sources then some fan made site called Pro Football Talk. They actually have legit insiders. When ESPN reports something, most of the time it is true.

    Where has Ted said that the deal wasn't going to contain Rodgers?

    The Raiders need more options at QB, someone for the future, so unless you are saying Rodgers doesnt have a great future it makes sense. Add to the fact the Rodgers played at Cal, tell me why he won't make sense to Al.

    Current Raider QBs... enough said:)

    16 Walter, Andrew QB 6-6 230 24 3 Arizona State
    8 Tuiasosopo, Marques QB 6-1 220 27 7 Washington


    Oh and don't forget AL DAVIS is all about saving face for bringing Moss in there in the first place. He got fleeced by the Vikings and Moss:)

    Rodgers also doesn't fit what Al Davis tends to like in a QB. David also passed on Rodgers for Fabian Washington I believe.

    First let me say I really only want to debate this and be objective, I am not looking to get into a pathetic tit for tat over this. I just think it makes sense from the Raiders view is all, Johnson fits everything a TEAM would want in a #1 WR. Height, speed, size, stength and hands....

    1.IF he passed on Rodgers maybe it is because Collins was in place that year, a little different this year.

    2. How doesnt Rodgers fit into what Davis likes in a QB, he has decent arm strength and performed well in college. He doesnt have much pro experience to draw from so all you really have is college tape to look at. Remember Rich Gannon, did not have a overly strong arm:)

    3. Ted did not say Rodgers wasnt being talked about in the deal, just not being shopped.
