Raiders also considered a trade for Vince Young

APWhen they lost quarterback Jason Campbell on Sunday, the Raiders started looking into veteran quarterbacks they could acquire. And Carson Palmer wasnít the only one they considered.

The Raidersí fallback plan if they hadnít been able to trade for Palmer? Vince Young, according to ESPNís Chris Mortensen.

Itís not clear whether the Raiders and Eagles ever had any actual trade talks for Young. It may just be that the Raiders talked internally about acquiring Young but never went far with it because the trade with the Bengals for Palmer worked out.

But itís amusing to think about the idea of the man who gave the Eagles the ďDream TeamĒ nickname being traded away from the team after throwing exactly one pass in an Eagles uniform ó a pass that was intercepted.

We should have offered them Matt Cassel for their 1st round pick

Wow, VY wouldn't last two minutes in Chokeland. That crowd would tear him to pieces after the first interception that he would throw.

Would definitely have been a smarter move than Palmer, but apparently Hue Jackson coached Palmer for years.

I think i would have preferred Steve McNair as a fall back plan over Vince Young.
