I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for the details of the conditional pick. It often takes a while for those kind of details to hit the presses.
Thanks Kearly. It seems to me a mountain of paperwork...filled with caveats, terms, conditions and "what ifs" would accompany such an open ended trade. Certainly our FO must have some language in there that states if Flynn becomes the 2013 version of Joe Montana, the conditional pick would be much higher than a 5th (?). It only stands to reason as I don't think Oakland, or any team, would balk at such an inclusion.
I like Flynn and hope for his individual success, but until I better understand the reward, I am going to hope for the Raiders to fail so that 2014 5th rounder is a very high 5th rounder.
Having your views challenged is a lot more healthy than simply jabbering on with people who think exactly the same way as you.
