Raiders trade rookie RB Bowden to Dolphins for draft pick


The Raiders are trading running back Lynn Bowden and a sixth-round draft pick to the Miami Dolphins for a fourth-round pick, the Dolphins announced on Saturday.

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport was first to report the trade.

Bowden was a third-round pick for the Raiders back in April, as the Kentucky product offers a versatile skillset, playing quarterback, running back and wide receiver during his college career.

Last Saturday, the Raiders also made a trade with Miami, acquiring linebacker Raekwon McMillan and a 2021 fifth-round draft pick from the Dolphins for a 2021 fourth-round pick. 

NFL teams must finalize their 53-man rosters by 1 p.m. PT Saturday, so it appears likely Bowden will be on Miami's Week 1 roster.
