It made some waves because of Incognito’s checkered past that had him suspended for the entire 2014 season and ensured no team signed him all of last season. Approaching 36, Incognito is hoping to play again this season after a year away. The Raiders have a need and offensive line coach Tom Cable seems to think the volatile Incognito could fill it. He worked out for the team today, but reportedly left without a deal, though one could still be struck.One sticking point could be possible league discipline for Incognito the moment he tries to play again. Gruden should be leery of signing players with pending suspensions. Just last year the Raiders traded for Martavis Bryant who they would waive in the final roster cuts knowing a suspension was coming. That suspension came down at midseason and caused Jon Gruden plenty of headaches with how often he missed practice with migraines. Incognito brings a different kind of headache to the locker room that doesn’t fit with the team’s new emphasis on strong character. Whether they reach a deal will tell us whether they are willing to forgive his checkered past and potentially toxic presence in the locker room in favor of filling a need on the field.Follow @LeviDamien We get pretty wrapped up in what the Raiders may or may not be doing in the draft around here.

We are a Raiders blog, after all. One of the common speculations is that the Raiders could trade down in the draft (my 2-round mock draft with trades for instance). But what if a team ahead of them trades out of their spot? That’s just what the Jets are said to be ‘determined’ to do according to a source close to SNY.This will obviously affect the Raiders at pick four, but how exactly will depend on who steps up to trade with the Jets and which player they are trading up to get.Should the first two picks go as many expect Kenny Stabler Jersey , QB Kyler Murray will be the Cardinals pick at number one overall, followed by Nick Bosa to the 49ers with the second pick. The next pick, should the Jets be selecting, is expected to be either Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen or Alabama DT Quinnen Williams. Most have Allen as the pick, which in turn has Williams there for the Raiders as the best player on the board and therefore the most logical pick should they stay at 4. Same would figure to be the case if Allen were there.Neither player is the perfect merger of value, need, and fit. The Raiders don’t have a glaring need at defensive tackle after drafting PJ Hall and Maurice Hurst in last year’s draft and re-signing Johnathan Hankins. And Allen played exclusively outside linebacker, rarely if ever playing with his hand in the dirt as a defensive end as the Raiders deploy.Regardless George Blanda Jersey , either Allen or Williams could be considered a win for the Raiders. They could pick one as the best player available or use that player as bait for a trade back, should they find more value in that. That would also figure to make the Jets pick at three that much more valuable in trade, because any team trading up could have either one, increasing the number of potential partners.Best case scenario, however, is a team trading up with the Jets for another player entirely. Like a quarterback. Teams who could be looking to select a quarterback in this draft (other than the Cardinals with the top pick) include the Giants at 6 and 17, Broncos at 10, Bengals at 11 Jim Plunkett Jersey , Dolphins at 13, and Washington at 15. Quarterbacks who figure to go in the first round include Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock, and Daniel Jones.Any trade that would involve a team jumping up to get a quarterback with the Jets pick would presumably leave the Raiders with all but Nick Bosa as an option at fourth overall.Follow @LeviDamien
