The Oakland Raiders started the 2018 NFL season by trading away their best player, sending Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears shortly before Week 1. The team dealt Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys Monday afternoon, creating speculation that more deals could be coming before the Oct. 30 trade deadline.

After trading their first-round picks from both 2014 and 2015, Oakland appears to be rebuilding. A 1-5 start has the Raiders 4.5 games out of first place in the AFC West and likely out of playoff contention before the midway point of the season.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Oakland told teams around the league that most players on the roster were available for a trade. Quarterback Derek Carr, 2017 first-rounder Gareon Conley and a few offensive linemen are among the few players that the Raiders reportedly haven’t considered moving.

Head coach Jon Gruden told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that Oakland isn’t trading anyone else. Raiders’ general manager Reggie McKenzie agreed that the team is still trying to win games, but he didn’t rule out any future deals.

“We’re building this thing in concert together, I’m talking about me and coach Gru,” Mckenzie told’s Paul Gutierrez. “We’re doing this thing together. When we make a deal, I think these picks are going to help this team tremendously, bottom line. It’s something I saw as a great opportunity. We’re not tanking this season. These guys will have to step up and continue to work to win some ball games. That will always be the case. There’s always opportunities elsewhere for trades. We have another week to do something else down the line or acquiring somebody. We’re not tanking this season. I want to win bad.”

Carr might not be on the trade block, but The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson reported that the quarterback has a “fractured relationship” with his teammates because of the way he reacted after getting sacked an injuring his arm in the team’s most recent game.

Oakland now has three first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft because of their two trades. There’s a chance all three selections will end up in the top 20 since Oakland, Dallas and Chicago are currently out of the playoffs.
