Raiders' Tender To LB Kirk Morrison Could Signal Trade Bait

The Raiders today offered a third round tender to LB Kirk Morrison.

It’s a strange situation because the Raiders could have offered him a second round tender for almost the same cost.

“It’s clear that the Raiders are hoping they can pick up a third-round pick for Morrison rather than assign him the second-round tender,” writes Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

So, it’s pretty obvious that they want someone to bite. What happens when no teams come at them with an offer sheet? Then they’re left with a guy who knows he was being shopped. Only the Raiders.

There have been reports floating around in recent weeks that virtually every player on Oakland’s roster is available via trade.
