Recently I heard that our trading Aaron Rodgers for Moss is basically not going to happen. Al Davis wants a first for Moss, but he'll come down once he realizes that Moss isn't going to play for his team so he has no leverage.

Davis is stupid if he thinks he could get a first rounder for Moss.

I could see the pack sending a 3rd or 4th rounder to oakland, or rodgers plus a later pick maybe.

Same here. I still just don't see Davis working such a thing out, though.

Posted on Rotoworld, March 13

A source "familiar with the inner workings of both organizations" confirmed to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that the Packers and Raiders have been discussing a trade that would send Randy Moss to Green Bay.
The Packers have reportedly been speaking to Moss about redoing his contract. The source said Oakland doesn't want Aaron Rodgers, but rather Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila or Corey Williams, who had seven sacks last year. GM Ted Thompson is expected to meet with the rest of the Packers' front office Tuesday to discuss the potentiality of a deal.

MOSS DEAL HINGING ON CONDITIONAL PICK

There's a hitch that has emerged in the ongoing negotiations between the Packers and the Raiders regarding the terms of a potential trade of receiver Randy Moss to Green Bay.

We're told that the Raiders will only take quarterback Aaron Rodgers if there's also a conditional draft pick based on Rodgers' performance in 2007.

In short, if Rodgers doesn't perform, the Packers have to give up more in 2008.

The Packers' concern is that, because the Raiders have been so bad of late on offense, it's a given that Rodgers won't play well in 2007. Moreover, the Packers are concerned that the Raiders will bench Rodgers at some point during the season in order to ensure that a higher pick will come their way from Green Bay in 2008.

To resolve this potential impasse, we're told that the Packers are considering offering a 2009 conditional pick based on Rodgers' play in 2007 and 2008.

As we see it, the conditional pick should also be tied to the performance of Moss. The more he does in 2007, the more the Raiders get in 2008.

Really, the trade is about Moss, not Rodgers. And if Moss plays at Lambeau Field like he performed there while a member of the Vikings, the Packers should be happy to eventually give up a first-day pick in 2008.


I like the idea of the conditional pick also depending on how Moss does. Like they said above, if he can play for the packers as well as he has played against them when with the vikings, then its well worth it.

Raiders coach expects Moss to be back for next year. If this goes down, which there's still a chance of, it will be on draft day. Thompson likes to make draft day trades.
