The Raiders were thought to be on the road to cutting a pair of offensive linemen as the new league year opened up, but they were able to find trading partners for each of them.

According to multiple reports, the Raiders have agreed to trade guard Gabe Jackson to the Seahawks. A 2021 fifth-round pick will go back to Vegas in the deal.

A report that the team would release Jackson broke early this month, but no move was made official and the Raiders’ patience paid off for them. The Raiders also dealt center Rodney Hudson to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Jackson is set to make $9.35 million this season and will slot right into a starting spot on the Seattle front. The addition of a productive veteran like Jackson to that group would seem to be the sort of thing that would be a plus for quarterback Russell Wilson in his quest to take fewer hits in the future.

  1. Trash organization, couldn’t just cut these guys and let them sign with the Chiefs.

  2. Mike – because of all of the restructures, cuts, etc., is it possible to get an update on the cap this week?

  3. At least they are getting something for them rather than just nothing. Both went to teams that are at least as good or better than the Raiders.

  4. Now that that their offensive is in shambles, the Wilson to the Raiders trade can be finalized.

  5. 9.6mill for the 44th ranked OG? YIKES. raiders have been SMART this off-season. Good deals in free agency or NO deals. We have the young talent we’ve been wanting, no need for contracts like the ones we gave joyner tyrell trent brown and maleik Collins.

  6. The Raiders are staring at a top 5 pick in the coming year or two.

    Nothing about them is impressive outside of that monster TE. Waller will be begging for a trade soon.

    Gruden needs to replace Mayock. Maybe it’s Todd McShays turn?

  7. Looks like the Seahawks think protecting Russell is a good thing. He’s not going anywhere despite all the noise.

  8. The extra two draft picks are definitely going to help. Fortunately, Mayock does his best work in the middle rounds.

  9. Traded the c and right side of the line for 2 5ths and a 3rd and avoid about 37 million in salary this year. Paying Incognito and Good about 8 for this season. Outlook is much better than yesterday even if I would have preferred keeping all three for one more year. Gotta use the $$ they haven’t already spent to sign Schwartz now and hope his back holds up.

  10. If Russell Wilson was serious, and not just crying crocodile tears, he would have restructured his contract so that the Seahawks could have acquired Rodney Hudson at $10M. I guess Wilson never really appreciated Max Unger, and supported the trade for Jimmy Graham.

  11. Total Raiders garage sale. Nice work, Gruden and Mayock. You have set this team backwards for years to come.

  12. I hate the Raiders but just as an outsider. The O-line didn’t seem the like the problem. The problem seemed to be the defense and lack of WRs.

    Behind the O-line the Raiders have right now. Derek Carr is going to get broke off like his big brother did.

  13. Watch out, the raiders accumulating all these picks will allow them to draft more Jamarcus Russels. Nothing like building a perennial 7-9 team “for the future”. If nothing else Chucky can say “you can’t fire me, we’re building go for the future”… Then In 5 years he’ll say, “you traded away all my talent”, he’s a lot smarter than the GM, but still a bad coach.

    Actually it was. #24 ranked OL in the league, while being the HIGHEST paid OL in the league, BY ALOT. Hudson sucks but we’ve had his replacement waiting for his time for a while. He wanted to leave and we still got a 3rd. Gabe hasn’t been the same since his knee injury (#44 OG. While getting 9.6 mill) trent is a lazy bum. Josh jacobs was getting stuffed behind the LOS regularly, carr was running for his life alot whenever we ran deep routes. Saved 40mill in cap for 2 players who were always hurt and 1 who wanted to leave.

  15. I was a bit worried yesterday, but after today’s signings & trades, I’m happy with the Raiders free agency. For once they’re not overspending.

  16. Before this off season is over we may see the Seahawks take a pass on the entire 2021 draft. I think they are down to 3 picks now.

  17. There sure is a lot of Raider hate on these comments. These people are clueless,Jackson replacement Good is better and Hudson replacement James is going to be a pro bowler! No worries in Raider Nation!

  18. @silver n black

    Never knew honestly but proofs in the stats. I respect it.

    That’s your team you would know better. I based my opinion off eyeball and seeing Josh Jacob’s having solid runs.

  19. Gruden and Mayock should be getting mad praise for these two trades. Unbelievable that fans think this is bad. Our run offense wasn’t too good last yr. these contracts were way too high, especially if Defense needs more attention..

  20. Now that the deconstruction of the Raiders is nearing completion, the only remaining question is when will Mark Davis extend Gruden’s mega contract? Face it, Raider Nation, your team has hit a new low which is truly incredible.

  21. The Faders are clearing up cap space so they can afford to pay Derek Carr as much as Dallas is paying Dak Prescott.

  22. Wilson never really appreciated Max Unger, and supported the trade for Jimmy Graham.

    Graham was an unstoppable force, and as good as any TE in history in his time with the Saints. Every QB in the NFL would have wanted that guy.

    .. teh Seahawks (attempted) to the guy into a blocker. THAT was the problem in your scenario.

  23. A fifth round pick is a bargain for a starting-calibur guard. I would imagine that a man his size was aquired more for his run-blocking power than for his pass-blocking skill. The real question is, will it be Chris Carson that he will block for?

    Exact. No offensive line? No offense! I don’t care what level of football, it holds true.
