Step one of the 2019 offseason plan for the Oakland Raiders is in place as they traded for Antonio Brown and step three could potentially have something to do with the Arizona Cardinals.

Yes, step two was skipped, that is the likely acquisition of Le’Veon Bell this offseason, but that doesn’t have much to do with the Arizona Cardinals.

No, step three is potentially the Oakland Raiders and Jon Gruden trading up to the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft to draft the one and only Kyler Murray.

Gruden is alleged to be enamored with Murray and the idea of the trio of Murray with Bell and Brown in tow as the team heads to Las Vegas is something that anyone that remains a Raiders fan will be able to get behind quickly.

The Raiders gave up nothing for Brown, well except for a massive contract for Brown which will make him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

Now, it is time for the Raiders to make a move up to get the quarterback they so want. What would the price be?

That is what we will see next, but for now, the first move has been made and the Arizona Cardinals sit and wait.
