The Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks have agreed in principle to send Matt Flynn to the Bay for two draft picks — one in the 2014 draft and a conditional pick in 2015, according to Adam Schefter. Oakland is also reportedly trying to ship Carson Palmer to the Cardinals for "minimal compensation."
For those worried about giving up Matt Flynn, his trade puts the Seahawks under the cap in 2014. A lot of key contract come up in next 2 yrs

Do we really know how good Matt Flynn is? Do Raiders know something we don't know? Oak better use Packers system,get WR's for Flynn success.

Matt Flynn got beat out by Russell Wilson, who produced a DYNAMIC 100 QB rating as a rookie in '12. No shame in that.

As you might have expected, injured Louisville guard Kevin Ware has received phone calls from the likes of Joe Theismann and Greg Anthony. Ware's teammates suprised him Sunday night after his surgery with the Midwest Region trophy. He'll probably be on the bench when Louisville faces Wichita State in the Final Four in his hometown ATL. It's fascinating how this tournament is known by its brackets, but toward the end of it, the brackets are past busted and in this case, most of us are just rooting for this kid.
