First off, Jay Glazer is the only reporter that ever breaks NFL news. I don't know how he does it.

This later from Glazer:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>The 2 picks the Raiders sent for Flynn are in 2014 and 2015 draft. Both are later rounds</p>&mdash; Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) <a href="https://twitter.com/JayGlazer/status/318740523160580096">April 1, 2013</a></blockquote>

I was about to hammer this deal but two "later round" picks might not be that bad.

It will be interesting to see what they get for Carson Palmer if that deal gets done. They gave up a lot to get him, and there is no way they are going to get back anywhere close to what they gave up to get him.
