Ravens QB Robert Griffin III & Raiders G Gabe Jackson Potential Trade Candidates

     

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that two names that have been discussed as potential trade candidates leading up to the start of the 2020 league year are Ravens QB Robert Griffin III and Raiders G Gabe Jackson.

Rapoport says that both players have non-guaranteed contracts and are considered tradable this offseason. 

Griffin, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. He spent four years in Washington before signing a two-year, $15 million contract that includes $6.75 million guaranteed with the Browns back in 2016.

RGIII was set to make a base salary of $6 million for the 2017 season when the Browns released him. He signed with Baltimore to a one-year, $1 million deal in 2018 and returned to the team last year on a two-year, $4 million contract. 

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Griffin would free up $2 million of available cap space while creating $500,000 in dead money. 

In 2019, Griffin appeared in seven games and completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 225 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He also rushed for 70 yards.

Jackson, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Raiders back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.952 million contract when he agreed to a new five-year, $56 million extension that included $26 million guaranteed with the Raiders in 2017. 

Jackson stands to make a base salary of $9.35 million for the 2020 season. 

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Jackson would free up $9.6 million of available cap space while creating no dead money. 

In 2019, Jackson was limited to appearing in 11 games for the Raiders, making 11 starts for them at right guard.
