The new Raiders regime is letting go of another high draft pick from the previous regime.

Las Vegas is trading cornerback Trayvon Mullen to Arizona in exchange for a conditional 2023 seventh-round pick, according to multiple reports.

The conditional pick could become a sixth-round selection based on Mullen’s playing time.

The Raiders selected Mullen in the second round of the 2019 draft. He emerged as a starter as a rookie, appearing in all 16 games with 10 starts. He then started all 16 games in 2020, recording a pair of interceptions and 14 passes defensed.

But a series of injuries left Mullen sidelined for much of the 2021 season. He appeared in only five games, recording one interception and four passes defensed.

With his injury, Mullen was largely unable to practice during the offseason program and training camp.

The Raiders traded for Rock Ya-Sin in March and signed Anthony Averett in free agency to lead the team’s cornerbacks group.

  1. This is not a smart move. Corner is tough position to find depth pieces for. Why trade him for almost nothing? He’s been solid when healthy. First weird move that McDaniels and Ziegler have made.

  2. Not a big loss. He was average at best, and may never be the same with his foot injury. Difficult for a DB to recover from Lisfranc. Same injury that plagued Deion Sanders.

  3. I don’t see the Raiders getting even 6 wins this season. They are clueless managing their personnel. Why in the world would you trade those critical draft picks for Devante Adams??

  4. Is anyone actually surprised here? We are talking about the worst run franchise in the league.

  5. He’s been good when healthy. Wonder why. What’s let him go for almost nothing, I’d rather have him depth than a 7th round pick. Good corners aren’t easy to come by. He’s still very young, injury was probably just an unlucky break.

  6. I always thought he could be a decent player, but injuries and playing in that garbage scheme under Guenther doomed him with the Raiders.

  7. Mullen is not a big loss. He rarely even played. I’m pretty sure it’s an injury that they feel is going to keep haunting him. Sounds like a Prime time turf toe type of thing.

  8. Horrible value for a CB who had a promising rookie season. Dude has been soft the last few years though. Webb has looked good in the preseason so hopefully he can be a player moving forward.

  9. Raiders are already in the gutter and the season hasn’t even started.

    Chiefs 14-3
    Chargers 12-5
    Broncos 10-7
    Raiders 5-12

  10. I love how all the Raider trolls come out of the woodwork when anything happens with the team.
    Raiders suck.
    Raiders are going to be 4-13.
    Worst franchise in football.

    They could win the Superbowl and ya’ll would still bash them because it makes you feel better about yourself.

    Raiders 4-0 in preseason without playing any starters. Learn your facts before you start posting garbage.

  12. Lots of anxiety in the Raiders fans comments. This is when excuses are conceived. I think the raiders can have success with Derek Carr provided he performs well; the same as last season. If injury arises – hopefully it’s the first excuse born and not the fifth. I’m not wishing an injury, but the raiders have no protection for Carr. Have fun with Mack and Bosa in week one. Good Luck.

    The regular season has 17 games now and none of which are preseason games.

    Raiders 5-12 *excluding exhibition games.

  14. Terrible move, Mullen is one of the good players on defense, and to only get late round compensation for him is so disappointing.

    I was cool with all the roster moves till this one. Man.. we couldve had a special defense now im not so sure..

    Any team can win the Superbowl genius, every team is 0-0 starting next week.

    You need to stop being so sensitive. The Raiders are a mess from scandals to poor personnel moves over the past 3-4 years. They aren’t going to have a very good chance with the Chiefs and Chargers as the clear front runners. Week One Derek Carr will be running for his life and throwing picks with Mack/Bosa coming at him with no protection up front with the Raiders shoddy OL.

  16. thinking you can’t really have enough depth at corner in the AFC West.
    .
    maybe explains why I’m not a coach or GM

  17. Well, the Raiders got Chandler Jones from the cardinals, so this is a nice return gift…. Will be interesting to watch these two clubs face off in week two.
