Grading Matt Flynn Trade to Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks have completed a trade that will send quarterback Matt Flynn to Oakland in exchange for a pair of draft picks, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports. 

Glazer also reports that the deal will include no 2013 draft picks, only late-round picks in 2014 and 2015. Albert Breer later reported the 2015 pick will be a conditional selection. 

Flynn, who turns 28 years old in June, would have been a pricey backup for the Seahawks. He's now a cheap starter for the rebuilding Raiders.

In the following slides, we will grade the entirety of the deal, from the fit in Oakland to the price and potential risk.
