    from Steelers for Ryan Switzer which is decent compensation Finally a trade the Raiders made this offseason in which is didn’t feel like they were robbed. Today Jon Gruden revealed the Raiders received a 5th round pick for Ryan Switzer [url=http://www.raidersfansclub.com/derrick-johnson-jersey/]Derrick Johnson Jersey[/url] , who the team had acquired during the draft for Jihad Ward. The Raiders also send a 6th rounder to Pittsburgh in the deal.So, essentially the Raiders traded Jihad Ward and a 6th round pick for a 5th round pick. That’s pretty good considering Ward had bust written all over him.Or, if you like, they traded Jihad Ward and a third and sixth round pick for Martavis Bryant and a 5th round pick.Switzer was a 4th round pick just last year, so to nearly receive his original draft value in a trade [url=http://www.raidersfansclub.com/dominique-rodgers-cromartie-jersey/]Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey[/url] , despite him not having done anything as a receiver in the NFL is pretty good.It’s refreshing to get good compensation in a trade after all the questionable trades they made in the draft. From getting just a 3rd round pick in their trade down in the first round with the Cardinals so they could get their franchise quarterback, to trading up in the third to get small school project tackle Brandon Parker.Gruden went on to say, the move was made possible because Dwayne Harris had proven his worth to the team, mostly on special teams, but also in his ability to play the slot.Follow @LeviDamien Disgruntled stars being traded isn’t necessarily new in the NFL.But the way Antonio Brown did it this offseason — a tactic which critics could reasonably describe as mutiny — was the kind of thing which ought to scare the NFL establishment.Because if more players realize the power they have [url=http://www.raidersfansclub.com/marshawn-lynch-jersey/]Marshawn Lynch Jersey[/url] , more may try the same thing.“We had a client who decided that he didn’t want to be with a given team and we were able to find a more desirable scenario and work out a new deal despite having three years left on the contract and not having to add more years,” agent Drew Rosenhaus told Peter King of NBC’s . “What I hope it does is maybe bring some more balance. There aren’t many players like Antonio Brown but perhaps—and I’m not suggesting that everybody go out and try to renegotiate their deal or ask for a trade—but I hope it gives players more leverage throughout the league. I hope it gives agents more confidence that they can affect something in a way that can make a positive change for their clients.“Maybe this is a deal that’s bigger than just one particular contract.”Rosenhaus is right in that not many players have the kind of juice to create that kind of change. But it will certainly be noted in many precincts, as players try to maximize what little leverage they have in a process which was built to limit their power. From being allocated to a team without any say in the matter as rookies (the draft), to having to wait beyond the average length of a career (four years) to pick their own destination in free agency (unless, you know [url=http://www.raidersfansclub.com/jared-cook-jersey/]Jared Cook Jersey[/url] , a team wants to use the franchise tag), players have few options.Antonio Brown used the ones he had. Others will inevitably try to follow, and some teams will inevitably take a hard line.
