NFL rumors: Raiders made 'substantive inquiries' on Jalen Ramsey trade

Through two games, the Raiders have allowed the most yards passing in the league. Facing reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs' explosive offensive doesn't help, but still.

You know what could help? A 24-year-old All-Pro cornerback in his prime who wants his current team to trade him. 

Jalen Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville and the Raiders could be the perfect match. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported Thursday that the Raiders are one of a handful of teams that have made "substantive inquiries" on a trade for Ramsey. 

Ramsey won't come cheap and likely will cost the Raiders one of their two first-round draft picks next year, but he's worth the hefty price tag. He can be a lot to handle, but so are most great cornerbacks. 

The former No. 5 overall draft pick is the true definition of a shutdown corner. He follows the opposing team's top receiver and causes chaos for a quarterback. Ramsey has nine interceptions in 50 career games and 45 passes defensed. 

With the Raiders moving to Las Vegas following this season, Ramsey already has expressed an interest in playing in Sin City in the past, too.

Though he's requested a trade, Ramsey is expected play Thursday night for the Jaguars against the Titans. A trade could soon be on the horizon, though. 

Buckle up, Raiders fans.

Raiders inactives: Trent Brown will play in Week 11 game vs. Bengals

OAKLAND -- The Raiders had a scare Friday when right tackle Trent Brown was listed as questionable for their Week 11 game against the Bengals at the Coliseum.

With tackle David Sharpe already listed as out with a calf injury, that would put Brandon Parker in line to start if Brown was unable to play. 

But it looks like the Raiders' offensive line will be whole to start the game as Brown is listed as active. The Raiders' offensive line played their first whole game together in Week 10, showing promised in a win over the Chargers. 

The Raiders also will be without starting slot cornerback Lamarcus Joyner who injured his hamstring in the win over the Chargers. Cornerback Nevin Lawson is expected to slide into his role Sunday, with Daryl Worley also potentially seeing time inside. 

The Raiders also designated quarterback DeShone Kizer, center Erik Magnuson, receiver Keelan Doss, defensive tackle Terrell McClain and return man Dwayne Harris inactive. Harris can't seem to get right, now missing his third straight game and seventh in the last eight. He has been dealing with ankle and foot issues most of the year, hindering the kicking game in the process. Trevor Davis has filled in returning kickoffs and punts, and will continue doing so on Sunday against the Bengals.

The Bengals made guard Alex Redmond, offensive tackle Cordy Glen, quarterback Jake Dolegala, tight end Drew Sample, receiver A.J. Green -- he was ruled out early in the week -- CB Torry McTyer and defensive end Anthony Zettel.

The good news is the Raiders are going up against the worst run defense in the league. The even better news is Oakland has Josh Jacobs.

The Bengals head to the Coliseum on Sunday to face a Raiders team that is favored to win. Cincinnati has the worst record in the league, so that shouldn't come as a surprise.

Quarterback Derek Carr hasn't thrown an interception in nearly a month and is looking like his old successful self.

This is guaranteed to be a fun game for the Raiders and their fans.
