In past years, the Oakland Raiders have made it known that most players on the roster are available in advance of the trade deadline.
Usually, the team holds back a name or two, like cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
This year, everyone is available, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Schefter teed off his report during Sunday NFL Countdown by making a reference to “rumor mongering,” a nod to the team’s past accusation that Schefter is a “false rumor monger.”
The development seems a bit odd, given that the Raiders are in the thick of things in the AFC West, tied at 2-3 with the Chargers and the Broncos behind the 3-1 Chiefs.
