    ESPN The Blitz just reported that the McNair and Al Davis are in discussions of a proposed trade that would send David Carr and our #8 pick to the Raiders for the top overall pick. The deal also included the Texans send their 5th round pick to the Raiders for their 6th round pick. The report is that the Texans have their sites on Calvin Johnson. If this trade goes through, it looks like the Texans would draft Johnson to start opposite of Andre Johnson and look to draft Ryan Kalil (USC, Center) of Reggie Nelson (Florida, Safety) in the second round and go quarterback in round 3 (Kolb or Stanton).

    Wow, just wow.

    Can we even afford to have 2 back to back 1st round picks on the team?

    If yes, and if we can get CJ, WOW! We'd have the best WR tandem in the NFL

    Al Davis isn't even that stupid. Its all speculation...we won't move anywhere in the draft.

    I just tuned in and the breaking news is still Chris Simon's suspension, so I'm guessing its just speculation.

    Id take this deal in a heartbeat and take CJ to make the best young WR tandem in the NFL.

    I like how were not giving up any other first day picks as well jus a 5th for their 6th. Not a bad trade off

    Of course just speculation but good speculation IMO

    Wow. That's all I want to say right now. IMHO, it makes more sense than the other possibilities....other than I'm not sure if Calvin would be my pick despite his incredible ability and can't miss talent....and I'm nto sure if the Raiders would actualy take this.

    Aww man, you got me all excited.
    Heres how I know it won't happen:
    Draft Value Chart:
    Overall pick #1 - 3,000
    Pick #8 - 1,400
    Thats a difference in 1,600 points, or the equivelant of the #6 overall pick.

    So doing this would in essence be like Washington trading us Carr for the #6 overall choice. We'd be getting a 1st for Carr

    So if by some miracle we could pull this off and then trade down to like 10-15 and pick up a bunch of extra draft choices, it'd be incredible

    Maybe he s, he is getting older.

    That said, if we trade Carr to them who throws the ball to Johnson & Johnson? The waterboy?

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned Tampa Bay in a trade. It would make the most sense.

    It would be the best move ever. I would forgive the Raiders for screwing us with P-burnt

    I would love to pick up CJ. I just do not know who is going to throw to him and Andre. If you guys say Sage.....you will be cursed.
