Fabian Washington-DB-Raiders Mar. 18 - 11:24 am et

The San Francisco Chronicle confirms that the Raiders are actively shopping CB Fabian Washington.

If Washington hadn't lost his confidence and job to Stanford Routt in 2007 and been accused of domestic battery in February, his value would be a lot higher. As is, Oakland shouldn't be asking for more than a third-round pick.

He's a player if his head is on right, and he can flat out fly.

I guess I wouldn't mind taking a risk on a guy with character issues if he was young, talented, and had very good production... for a mid round pick.

That said... Washington has not been all that productive. He's been okay (specifically the 2006 season) at times.

All things considered... I might give up a 5th rounder this year for him... but that's about it.

Yeah, I'm not offering anything better than a late round pick now that the Raiders are ready to unload players that...
