02:02 PM ET 04.01 | The Oakland Raiders have traded two draft choices to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for quarterback Matt Flynn. Oakland is expected to complete a Carson Palmer trade on Monday, as well. Seattle receives a fifth-round 2014 pick and a 2015 conditional pick from Oakland in exchange for Flynn. Now in Oakland, Flynn will face competition from Terrelle Pryor and Matt Leinart, but he is expected to be the Raiders' starting quarterback. Flynn has just two career starts -- starting for the Packers in 2010 against the New England Patriots and again in 2011 against the Detroit Lions. Through his first five seasons, Flynn has attempted just 141 passes, completing 87 (61.7 percent) for 1,083 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions.

Good move by the Raiders, finally. Now get at least a third round pick from Arizona for Palmer, and draft wisely.

getting a 4th or 5th. Lets hope they trade out of the third spot to get more picks

exchange of 5th for a 6th and a 7th so they move up 35 some odd picks and get a 7th not bad for a guy they'd cut if there wasn't a deal in place

With Buffalo and the Cards getting retreads at QB Geno Smith might tumble Brady Quinn like through the draft
