Raiders trade Rodney Hudson to Cardinals, swap draft picks


Report: Raiders trade Hudson to Cardinals, swap draft picks originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Raiders, according to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport, are finalizing a trade sending center Rodney Hudson to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for draft picks.

In a surprising move, the Raiders reportedly released the three-time Pro-Bowl center on Tuesday, but it appeared the team saw Hudson’s value and opted out for a trade.

The Cardinals reportedly will send a third and seventh-round pick for Hudson, ESPN’s Adam Schefter says, citing sources. 

This also adds to some head-scratching moves Raiders general manager Mike Mayock is making. He essentially stripped the entirety of the offensive line reportedly releasing guards Gabe Jackson and Richie Incognito. 

This move definitely works in the Cardinals’ favor, however. 

It’s a significant upgrade for Arizona at the center position and the team was rumored to have their eyes on centers.

It also appears the Raiders will hold on to Hudson’s contract that runs through 2022.

Looks like Las Vegas still has a lot of work to do this offseason.
