RAIDERS BACK!!!

Okay, okay, so it's probably still a little bit too early to say something that bold. But, at the very least, it sounds like the Raiders franchise is now headed in the right direction. They reportedly just pulled off a deal with the Seahawks that will send quarterback Matt Flynn to Oakland in exchange for a 2014 draft pick and a conditional pick in 2015. The Raiders will also reportedly send last year's QB Carson Palmer to the Cardinals in exchange for what's being referred to as "minimal compensation" (a Larry Fitzgerald autograph?). It's not officially official just yet. But, assuming the deal goes through as planned, the Raiders just added a major piece to their offense.

Good going, guys.
