According to Dan Parr of ProFootballWeekly.com, the Oakland Raiders are expected to put running back Darren McFadden on the trade block this offseason to see what they can get in return for him.Parr also wrote that Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is “open to listening if a team showed a willingness to part with a draft pick, or picks, for McFadden’s services.”As great as McFadden is, he is injury prone and running backs don’t have a lot of trade value.  I don’t see him going anywhere. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

More to Come from Raiders’ Palmer in 2013
