They give up their 3rd and 5th this year and their 3rd next year to move up 3 spots to go and get one of those guys. Meanwhile...

Jacksonville Jaguars sign C Stefen Wisniewski

Stefen Wisniewski, a 2011 2nd round pick, has made 61 starts over the past 4 years for the Raiders.

Oakland Raiders Defensive Coordinator Ken Norton Jr. Waking Up the Team is Hilarious

Ken Norton Jr. was an absolute beast of a player back in his day so it only stands to reason that he would be just as much of a beast when it comes to coaching. The only thing is that he doesn't hit people anymore for a living so he has to channel that intensity in another fashion. Thanks to this video from linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong it appears that he is putting his intensity...
