And as @AlbertBreer says, #Raiders & #Seahawks have agreed on compensation for a Flynn deal. Working out kinks. But nearing conclusion
Stupid Move. Dont want Flynn here. Hopefully pryor beats him out in camp. This sucks just when I thought this team was heading in the rite direction reggie slaps me in the face. Hopefully this dosnt bite reggie in the *** and gets him fired.
UPDATE: FLYNN TRADE MAY NOT GO THRU.
In addition to having interest in Seahawks QB Matt Flynn, the Raiders have discussed the possibility of signing QB Kevin Kolb
-Sirius XM Radio's Adam Caplan reports the Raiders have "discussed the possibility" of signing free agent Kevin Kolb.Tap the breaks on Matt Flynn-to-Oakland. Despite a Friday report that a Flynn trade was "imminent", multiple indications since have pointed to Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie weighing his options. In our estimation, signing Kolb without coughing up picks would be a far smarter pursuit then dealing the Seahawks draft selections the Raiders need to rebuild a putrid roster. Kolb is only ten months older than Flynn, and neither is a franchise-caliber quarterback
-Seahawks will get a 2013 draft pick and some sort of conditional pick in 2014 as part of the Matt Flynn trade, if it's completed.
-Re: Flynn trade ... Possibility also exists that picks going back also could wind up being 2014 and '15, instead of '13 and '14.
-To be clear: The Seahawks have done their part in the Matt Flynn trade. It's up to the Raiders and Flynn to push it over the goal line now.
Mike Jurecki of XTRA Phoenix reports the Cardinals are "looking into" trading for Carson Palmer.Getting any compensation for a 33-year-old quarterback with a $13M salary would be quite the coup for Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie. Per Jurecki, the Cards would need Palmer to rework his contract and the only picks they're willing to surrender would be "conditional," based on play time and performance. A late-Friday tweet from the Arizona Republic's Kent Somers also indicated the Cardinals might be willing to part with "late pick(s), conditional" for the two-time Pro Bowler.

Matt Flynn remains the property of the Seahawks, multiple days after reports emerged that heíll be traded to the Raiders.
But the widespread belief for now is that the trade will indeed get done, and that it will happen soon.
The two teams have haggled over draft-pick compensation, with former Green Bay colleagues Reggie McKenzie and John Schneider, now the General Managers of the Raiders and Seahawks, respectively, twisting each otherís arms to get the best possible deal.
If/when (when) Flynn becomes a Raider, the question becomes whether the Raiders will remain interested in West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith (if they ever were in the first place). With Flynn not getting huge money and with the Raiders still lukewarm on Terrelle Pryor, the Raiders could take Smith with the third overall pick.
The other practical consequence of Flynnís arrival in Oakland will be the departure of Carson Palmer, either by trade (with a greatly reduced contract) or by release. He reportedly is interested in playing for the Cardinals or 49ers. (We still think the Seahawks make the most sense, if he truly prefers being a backup on a contender to being the starter for another struggling team.) If Palmer lands in Arizona, thatís another top-10 team that could pass on Smith.
Now that the Bills have Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson, they could be out of the running for a rookie quarterback in the top 10.
Thatís three teams reportedly interested in Geno Smith and/or Matt Barkley who could be passing on passers at the top of round one, which could fuel a slide for all quarterbacks out of the top 10 and, barring a trade, straight through the teens.
Unless, of course, Shaun King of NBCSNís Pro Football Talk is accurate in his strong belief that the Jaguars will take Smith with the second selection in the draft.
