    Sources: All Oakland Raiders players available before deadline - ESPN

    "The Oakland Raiders called around the league this week and let it be known that any of their players are available in a trade, according to league sources. "

    What about Thomas Howard and/or Micheal Bush. We could use the help at LB and RB (LB obviously being the higher priority)

    Richard Seymore.

    Then Asoumagua or whatever his name is even though Rivers tore his chit up last week.

    Howard maybe for a song, Bush I don't think we need considering Tolbert (who should be better in a backup role)

    I am surprised no one wants date rape Janokowski.

    Cut Nate.

    Gimme Jano as well.

    Since it is a smorgasboard to pick and choose, lets rock and chop heads.

    None of their offensive linemen are worth a crap. Maybe Seymore for the DL, but even Tommy Kelly isn't great, and he is their 2nd best DL

    I would take Fatakowski, at least we have a chance at a touchback on kickoffs with him. We have no chance with Nate

    Raiders won't trade these guys in the division, and we're already without our 4th, 5th, and 6 or 7th (Crayton).

    Why is it as soon a thread posts about players being put on trading block everyone always starts the we should get that guy debate?

    Not that OAk would trade us anything even if we were offering to take up Nnadis insane QB..i mean CB contract.

    Only players Id take off OAk would be Micheal Bush.

    But like its been said they arent goin inner division unless it is a desperation move like dumping a huge contract player.

    So I like GB to take up the flyer on Micheal Bush. GB is still hurtin for a RB.

    Just curious, WTF do we have to offer someone in a trade? We're going to mortgage more draft picks to make ourselves a .500 club this season? Why?

    That's pretty much what I was wondering.

    The best we can do this year is just hope to sneak in on the heels of a weak division with what we've got and hope to get lucky come playoff time.

    That's not very endearing but it's better than mortgaging the future to slightly increase those hopes.

    Sorry, I don't want AJ to be able to use the excuse that Norv has won the division 5 years in a row as an excuse to keep him. We have no chance in the playoffs, so I would rather not make it and blow Norv out of San Diego. Sometimes, you have to take a step back to take a step forward. We are not moving forward under Norv

    I'll take their entire special teams. I am not sure how they are producing this year but couldn't be worse. And jano for kaeding, in a heartbeat. Oh Oh Oh! I'll trade O lines too.

    The future be damned, I want to win every year.

    I may be realistic and not expect to win, and I may be practical and not want to trade away future draft picks to slightly increase this year's low odds, but I will ALWAYS want to win.

    To me you're crossing a line if you hope to lose just because you think that betters the chances of personnel changes.

    (Not trying to tell you how to be a fan there, that's just my personal feeling on the matter)

    If we could win and get rid of Norv, I would be all for it. But I don't want this guy here any longer, and what ever it takes for AJ and/or Dean to pull the trigger, then I am all for it

    Is this a different take on fantasy football? Uncle Al makes more money from selling souvenirs and Rayder-logo gear worldwide than he does with his football team...

    AJ couldn't pull the trigger even if he wanted to.

    I don't think Norv goes anywhere unless AJ goes with him, but in that case, Dean Spanos would have to fork out somewhere around $12 mil to buy them out of their contracts

    That still doesn't make it AJ's decision.
