    Just heard on my local sport radio show there is talk about a trade between the falcons and raiders. (no links to give sorry.)

    Falcons send M Vick to Oakland in return for Moss and Porter and the two teams switch their first round picks.

    Have not heard anything on ESPN or other news outlets has anybody else heard anything?

    Mods. if this needs to be moved to the NFL so be it but because it involved switching the first round picks I posted it here.

    Guys on the radio where saying for the Raiders it made scents to them because Vick fills the QB position for them, he is a ticket seller, and getting rid of Moss and Porter quites all the problems they had in the locker room this year.
    The upside for the Falcons is it gives them the recivers thay are lacking in there Off. right now and Schaud is a better passer than Vick.

    IF this is true I dont understand the switching 1st round picks thing. Only thing I can think of is Vick big money contract dont know if Oakland can afford Vick plus a 1st round 1st pick money.

    the raiders would have to take a hard look at USC WR Dwayne Jarrett, but seems more like somthing created off the internet/media :winky:

    pretty dumb trade for oakland. and the cap penalties would be too much for atlanta (something like 15 million right off the bat in dead money). unrealistic from all angles, let's face it.

    so this whole time it was vick that needed recievers, and now the trade that brings them recievers is the same trade that ships vick out?

    thats what im saying...vick wont be good in oakland then....they have no receivers if they ship moss and porter....unless calvin is the first pick and he is an instant stud which i doubt.....but they wont get him if they trade round 1 pics....so it really doesnt make sense for oakland at all......

    This is just a rumor.............this would be one of the stupidest trades that I can remember. Trading a disgruntled star for two disgruntled stars? Come on, this ain't Madden :tease:
