Raiders Trade Randy Moss to Patriots

As my friend Q-Bert would say, Holy F%@&! The Patriots will deal a fourth-round pick to Oakland for Randy Moss. Do they just not want to draft players this year? I hope that fans -- and the Patriots themselves -- understand that they are not getting the receiver that Moss was five years ago. He has lost a significant amount of his speed, and he's basically a very good, somewhat quick possession receiver at this point. But that's still going to give the Patriots more than they would get from a fourth-round pick, and the Patriots have the speed demon on the other side.

Darrell Jackson to 49ers?

According to "the other" Michael Smith, there's a deal in the works that would send Seattle receiver Darrell Jackson to San Francisco for a fourth-round pick. I don't know who wrote the blurb about this at Rotoworld, but I can't say it any better than they did: If the Seahawks are willing to trade Jackson to a division rival without even getting a first day pick in return, they REALLY must not think very highly of him.

Ogden Returning to Ravens

Great news for Ravens fans, as Jonathan Ogden's returning to the Ravens in 2007. He didn't even pull the Dan Wilkinson "I'm going to spend all of training camp deciding" move out of the playbook.

Attn: DC FO Readers

You traded your first-round pick for a bag of footballs.

No, just kidding. I am heading down to DC for the weekend and I have no idea where to watch the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Your suggestions on where to enjoy the agony of Berman and the musk of Kiper would be appreciated. I'll be staying a few blocks away from the White House, near the Metro Center stop on the Red Line. E-mail the suggestions to bbarnwell (-a-) footballoutsiders.com. Much obliged.

Jason David Goes to the Saints

Sorry we missed this story when David first signed his offer sheet... The Colts announced today that they won't match the contract David signed with New Orleans, so they'll get a fourth-round pick from the Saints and have two new starting cornerbacks this year. Certainly, cornerbacks are not as valuable in the Tampa-2 as they might be in other defensive schemes, but Tampa Bay and Chicago certainly seem to value their corners more than the Colts.
