    I'm curious as to what the compensation will be. If it's a draft pick, it would probably depend on how Gabriel performs. Any guesses? I'm thinking a late round pick (5th or 6th?).

    Not to nit-pick but the bio says he went to UCF.

    We'll see how he does now that he has a real QB throwing too him.


    Sorry, I wrote the same time as you.

    It looks like he was the #3 behind Moss and Porter.

    "Sep 2 Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports the Oakland Raiders have traded WR Doug Gabriel to the New England Patriots. The compensation for Gabriel has not been announced yet. Gabriel's departure would seem to leave the door open for WR Jerry Porter, who has requested a trade, to move back into the starting lineup."

    PATSRI, on top of his game. Nice find. Nice pick up.

    Could mean they are considering accepting a trade offer.

    WRs would be Gabriel, Jackson, Caldwell, Childress, and ? Or, if they do sign Branch, the corp. just got VERY much better, VERY quickly.

    Think the Patriots are buzy today?

    Now, I have to scan the waiver wires for an ILB.:)

    BTW, he was listed as the starting WR opposite Randy Moss on the Raiders most recent depth chart:

    http://www.raiders.com/team/depth.jsp

    This looks like a good pick-up to me. The Pats will be trying to patchwork it at WR this year, but between this guy and Chad Jackson's potential, the Pats may be in a position to seriously upgrade their receiving corps.

    A note on scouts.com said Doug Gabriel has spent the early part of training camp working with the first unit offense. I also read he was a Gunner on ST for the Raiders.

    So was he playing as the #2 during the preseason then? I never did watch any of the Raider's games.

    Edit: Too much action on this thread, thanks lobster.

    Forgetting someone? Don't you think that the "?" should be Troy Brown?

    He's better than a 53 cutdown player. He's a #2/#3.

    Nice. We just found John Taylor to replace Dwight Clark/Freddy Solomon in the 2nd regime.

    After realizing that he was slated to play a lot for the Raiders, I'm thinking we might have given up a 3rd for him.

    Well, when you're desperate, you have to do this sort of thing.

    If we can get Jackson on the damn field, I think we'll be okay without Branch. Until the injuries start...

    The Pats gave up a 3rd for D. Starks. I'm thinking this will better if it is for a 3.
