There are a lot of reviews about the Carson Palmer trade after just one half of one game that he wasn't prepared to play in. It is a move that needs time to develop before we are able to know the true value of this trade for the Raiders. Palmer needs time to get into the playbook and work with his receivers.
Meanwhile, there's another trade that's paying immediate dividends and no one is talking about it. Aaron Curry is already showing himself to be a steal as the Raiders gave up a 2012 seventh-round pick and a condtional fifth-round pick for a man that has made an immediate impact on Raiders defense.
Last year, the Oakland Raiders had Kamerion Wimbley come to Raider Nation and reclaimed his career. This year, Aaron Curry has come to the nation and he's in the process of doing the same thing.
You can call it just a couple of games if you want to for the 2009 first-round pick that's recently been on the bust list. But this move for the Raiders to reclaim yet another career has greatness written all over it!
