According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Raiders are among the list teams that have the Steelers have contacted about a trade for Ben.
Yes, I know, it is Adam Schefter. The Raiders have a pure hatred for Mr. Schefter.
Yet, his sources are top notch, and it shouldn't seem surprising that the Steelers are considering the opportunity to trade him if it means a top ten pick in return.
The Raiders were interested in McNabb, and have been rumored to be interested in Jimmy Clausen at the No. 8 pick.
I can't see the contract of Ben stopping them from making a deal.
It's whether or not the Raiders want to trade a top selection in what is a deep class for a quarterback who can damage what is already a thin perspective around the league.
