Oakland also trying to finalize a trade that would send Carson Palmer to Arizona for one late pick. Palmer would restructure contract in AZ.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 1, 2013
In a corresponding move, the Raiders are working to finalize a deal to send Carson Palmer to Arizona for a draft pick.
If both moves become official, Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor will most likely battle for the starting job.
