In their second trade involving a quarterback in as many days, the Raiders on Tuesday traded Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals. General Manager Reggie McKenzie made the announcement. 

Details of the trade:

  • From the Raiders, Arizona receives Palmer and a seventh-round 2013 selection (219th overall, a pick initially acquired by Oakland from Carolina for WR Louis Murphy in July).
  • From the Cardinals, Oakland receives a sixth-round selection in this month’s draft (176th overall, initially obtained by Arizona from Tennessee, through Minnesota), as well as a conditional 2014 Arizona draft choice.

By swapping sixth- and seventh-round choices, Oakland moves up 43 selections, and depending on the conditions, may have replaced the choice the Raiders lost Monday to the Seahawks for Matt Flynn.

“We’d like to thank Carson Palmer for his services over the past two seasons,” McKenzie said, “and we wish him well with the Cardinals.”

Oakland’s seven selections in the 2013 NFL Draft, as of April 2 (listed by round, pick in round, and overall selection):

  • 1-3-3
  • (2-5-37…traded to Cincinnati for Carson Palmer, with Oakland’s first-round choice in 2012, Oct. 18, 2011)
  • 3-4-66
  • 4-3-100
  • (5-5-138…traded to Seattle for Aaron Curry, Oct. 14, 2011)
  • 6-4-172
  • 6-8-176 (from Arizona for Carson Palmer, April 2, 2012…pick originally acquired by Cardinals from Tennessee, through Minnesota)
  • 6-37-205 (compensatory award, cannot be traded)
  • 7-3-209
  • 7-13-219 (traded to Arizona for Carson Palmer, April 2, 2012…pick originally acquired by Raiders from Carolina for Louis Murphy, July 24, 2012)
