A rumor is flying around that the Raiders are interested in the chance to move running back Darren McFadden. If that is so, the Lions are reportedly interested in McFadden’s services. PFT reports the latest on the possible move of McFadden to another squad before tonight’s draft.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported this morning that the Oakland Raiders would be open to trading running back Darren McFadden. Now a new report offers the first suggestion of which team the Raiders might trade him to.
Tom Kowalski of MLive.com reports that the Detroit Lions would likely be very interested in talking to the Raiders about acquiring McFadden.
However, Kowalski reports that the Lions aren’t likely to give up more than their third-round pick (66th overall) to acquire McFadden. For as disappointing as McFadden has been, the Raiders might not be willing to give up a talented 22-year-old for just a third-rounder.
