12:16 PM ET 03.30 | With the Seahawks and Raiders allegedly close to a deal that would send back-up quarterback Matt Flynn to Oakland in exchange for draft picks, it would seem Oakland is done with quarterback Carson Palmer. If further proof is needed of an impending Raiders/Palmer divorce, a report from Adam Caplan that former Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb is drawing the interest of the Raiders should solidify it. Kolb was released by Arizona March 15, ending a largely underwhelming stint in the desert. He played in 16 games over two seasons, throwing 11 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. Buffalo is also said to be interested in Kolb, who could be brought in to compete with Tarvaris Jackson in the wake of the team's release of Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason. But the Raiders are apparently considering Kolb to be a Plan B option in what seems to be the unlikely event the trade for Flynn falls through. Needless to say, he'd fit in well with the underwhelming quarterbacks of the past and present in Buffalo.

I wish they would make their minds up! Terrell (almost ruined OSU football) Pryor would like his big chance. I mean he can run and pass and emulate Cam. At least in his mind he can.
There has got to be something the Raiders don't like about Terrell and it may be in practice. Maybe its a character thing.

If the Raiders had any confidence to speak of in Pryor, I don't think they'd be trying to get Flynn, who has one more NFL game under his belt than Pryor does.

I'd try and get Flynn...

If I am the Raiders I am trading Palmer to the Cards for a first round pick and taking that pick to move up in the first round and get Smith from W VA. as my QB.

Ugh. I'd rather lose with Pryor than with Kolb.

Deer in the headlights Kolb? Can't figure out the interest.
