Pro Football Weekly is reporting that there may be on going trade talks between the Raiders and the Redskins.
According to PFW the trade would involve the Raiders and Redskins swaping first round picks and the Redskins giving the Raiders one of the following players.
The Redskin player mentioned most prominently in the article was left tackle Chris Samuels.
The article stated the if the Raiders were to acquire Samuels, they would then most likely draft either a WR or a TE with their first round selection.
Samuels, according to the article, is in the middle of contract talks with the Redskins and there has not been much progress.

now, maybe about 10% of trade rumours actually happen but this is just something that is being talked about. I've read that coach Gibbs isn't happy with what he's seen from his O line in training camp. I've also read that the Skins aren't having much luck in contract negotiations with Samuels. I think it would make sense for both teams, here's why...
1. Redskins don't want to pay samuels so they get to dump this problem of theirs on the raiders
2. Raiders improve their O line even more, and stay in place to draft roy williams.
3. the redskins get in great position to take gallery, who might become a better/cheaper option for them.
