Raiders Transactions and Trent Brown
The Raiders have reportedly going to trade Trent Brown and a 2022 7th round pick to the Patriots for their 2022 5th round pick. A good trade to at least get some value back for someone that wasn't on the field enough to rely on. According to Jerry McDonald @jerrymcd, by removing Tyrell Williams, Gabe Jackson, Lamarcus Joyner, Richie Incognito and Trent Brown the Raiders would have approximately $30 million in cap space.
It is nice to have the cap space to make moves. However, the offensive line has been a consistent strength for the Raiders over the past few years. Now it will be a question mark that must be rebuilt along with the defense. Derek Carr is an above average QB that must have a good offensive line to be able to make this a playoff team.
