First was Khalil Mack prior to the start of the season, then Amari Cooper at midseason. This year, the Raiders acquired Antonio Brown in a trade with the Steelers, though some would argue 31 years old is a bit past his prime, though that’s debatable and we won’t really know the answer for a few years yet.Also this offseason, the Browns traded for Odell Beckham Jr. He is 26 years old, so there’s no debating that he is in his prime.Obviously trades involving players in their prime is somewhat common. But some end up bigger deals than others. All of whom we won’t know how big a deal it was until a few years down the road.NFL.com’s Elliott Harrison decided to compile a list of what he deems to be the top 20 NFL trades of players in the prime and the Raiders are all over it, whether the team acquiring the player or trading them away. They were involved in a total of six trades in his top 20 and four in the top ten alone.Starting at number 3.3) Ted Hendricks, linebacker4) Mike Haynes https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/au...o-brown-jersey , cornerback6) Marshawn Lynch, running back9) Willie Brown, cornerback11) Randy Moss, receiver20) Khalil Mack, pass rusherIt’s good that five of these six trades involved players the Raiders acquired as opposed to traded away. Though the Randy Moss one probably isn’t great news considering they traded away a first round pick for one good season and then got only a 4th round pick out of it when they traded him to New England.Khalil Mack is the only player on the list who can still move up. Barring any kind of unforeseen collapse or injury by Mack, his trade will move up this list quickly. Should Amari Cooper continue to play as well with the Cowboys as he did the latter half of last season, he could appear on the list at some point as well, though Odell Beckham would be first because he’s a much better player than Coop at this point of his career.Follow @LeviDamien Sunday Rodney Hudson announced that he had earned his Masters Degree.

It was yet another major accomplishment for the already highly decorated Raiders center.“He’s graduated from pass protection U Womens Derek Carr Jersey , run blocking State and now he’s got his Masters in Business. And that just certifies what kind of guy you’re dealing with here,” Jon Gruden said of Hudson. “He’s a great player on the field, he’s one of our captains and true team leaders. He’s as tough a guy as we have. I’ve seen him play with kidney stones and various ailments. And to get a Masters degree is a huge accomplishment. I compliment him till days end. He’s special.”Hudson is also entering the final year of his contract with the five-year deal he signed with the Raiders prior to the 2015 season. At 29, and still very much in his prime, keeping him around should be a top priority. According to Gruden, the Raiders are working on it.“I know Mike Mayock has talked to his agent,” Gruden said. “I don’t want to get involved in the specifics of those conversations, but we consider him a big piece of this franchise and we’re going to do everything we can to keep him here for a long time.”While Mayock may have spoken with Hudson’s agent at some point, I was unable to confirm any actual contract discussion have occurred at this time. But they certainly should be.When Hudson signed his deal back in 2015, he was the highest paid center in the league averaging $8.9 million a year. Now the 2-time Pro Bowler is tenth. Three centers over the age of 30 are currently averaging more per season than Hudson and all he would need to become the highest paid center in the league is a $2.5 million per season bump. He’s earned it. Getting on those discussions would be smart.Follow @LeviDamien
