Raiders Shopping Denarius Moore for 4th Round Draft Pick


Rumors have the Oakland Raiders are dangling out their receiver Denarius Moore for a 4th round draft pick. They are asking for a bit much though. The draft is filled with receivers this coming season and Moore might not be worth that value, despite the potential that he has shown.

Why would the Raiders want to shop one of their best receivers? First, they signed James Jones to a deal already and he will be starting on one side for Matt Schaub and the offense. The Raiders also have a couple of other young receivers in Rod Streater and Andre Holmes that they have some trust in. The Raiders are also a team that has been mentioned in connection with Desean Jackson. The Raiders also could use their first round draft pick to select a receiver like Sammy Watkins. There are a lot of different directions the Raiders can go and Moore is not necessarily needed on the roster. The Raiders can use him to obtain a pick in the coming draft.

Not sure who would want to pay the price tag, but the Panthers still have a bunch of scrubs at wide receiver and might want to look at bringing Moore in. The Jets also are looking to fill the spot next to Eric Decker. There could be some destinations for the young receiver.

    I like Moore but if we can pick up Jackson or draft one of the top receivers he will be forgotten quickly.

    Bogus move he’s good if we get Watkins they will be the future and if we get Jackson he can learn how to use his small from and speed from djax I say he worth it still

  • James Holtslander

    I like him a lot but he did dissapear at times we needed him. I agree with both of the other posts, hah I’m sitting in the fence

    Guess they are thinking about drafting a wr then

    Good. Get ANYTHING for him. This one of the last Al Davis “Scholarship” picks. The other two are Ford and Pryor.

    Might be worth the price for the Jets….they desperately need a veteran WR to go along with Decker. They own 3 4th rounders, their own and the Revis pick can be traded. He has an upside and is only 25 yrs old, a change of scenery might do this kid and the Jets some good. Jackson’s price tag is probably going to rule him out for the Jets. Idzik might consider a 4th rounder cheap enough.
