NFL Trade Rumors: Oakland Raiders Say All Players Are On The Block; Atlanta Falcons Interested?

ESPN reported the Oakland Raiders have offered their entire roster up to every team in the NFL as trade pieces, just as they did last year:

Raiders players that have drawn interest around the league since training camp began include linebacker Thomas Howard and cornerback Chris Johnson.

The Atlanta Falcons have devoted significant resources to both of those positions since Thomas Dimitroff took over three years ago, drafting linebackers Curtis Lofton and Sean Weatherspoon plus signing free agent linebacker Mike Peterson, and adding cornerbacks like Dunta Robinson, Christopher Owens, Dominique Franks, and Brian Williams.

The Falcons did add Tye Hill via trade last year, but that was a stopgap measure meant to shore up a young and depleted secondary. It's unlikely the team would consider trading picks for either Howard or Johnson at this point as the Falcons' defense has held its own so far, even considering last week's blowup in Philly.
