I'm sorry, but teams dont make football decisions to trade their third round picks, even in a season like this. It's never about immediate impact with rookies, whatever they saw told them he was absolutely hopeless and from their perspective they fleeced us. Maybe that was the football decision, getting rid of a bad player and a mistake while he still had value. The saving grace would be if they are just wrong. FWIW The raiders boards seem to be praising making the trade from their end, as he apparantly looked unathletic and fairly awful from what reports there are.
