The Raiders offered Asomugha for McNabb...If they offered us Asomugha and their 1st round pick for Ben...that might be worth considering. Asomugha is among the best cover corners in the game, however he's also making 12 mil a season. It's almost a crap shoot. If Ben fucks up one more time then he's gone and we wont get shit for him. But he is also is a top 5 QB, and if we were to trade him we'd need a lot in return. Tough situation, I think we really have to keep him and hope he doesn't fuck up again.
According to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, the Raiders are in contact with the Steelers about a trade for Ben Roethlisberger.
La Canfora says Oakland "might be (the) only real option" for Pittsburgh if the Steelers are truly prepared to wash their hands of the 28-year-old QB. The Raiders, smartly (for once), appear to have realized that JaMarcus Russell is a bust, and very arguably the biggest in NFL history. The Steelers might ask for Nnamdi Asomugha in addition to Oakland's No. 8 overall pick.
