Oakland Raiders Trade for Miami Dolphins' Center Samson Satele

Written By Bob Cunningham On Monday, March 23, 2009
In a trade with the Miami Dolphins, the Oakland Raiders have acquired center Samson Satele in a move that likely has given the Raiders a new starter at center.

NFL.com and even the Dolphins' website is reporting that the trade involved undisclosed draft picks, but 2 Minutes to Midnight Green has learned that the trade was for a 6th round pick and a swap of 4th round picks.

The Raiders will now hold the 26th selection in the 4th round with the Dolphins taking Oakland's 8th selection in the same round.

Satele was a 2nd round pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2007.

He has played in and started all 32 games since coming into the NFL.

Satele should go into Oakland with a clear path to the starting role for the Raiders. He has proven to be a quality starter during his short time in the league.

Good pickup for the Raiders, seems like the Dolphins feel like they have another choice at center, possibly free-agent pickup Jake Grove.

In an interesting twist, Grove just happened to be Oakland's starter in 2008.
