The Oakland Raiders have traded wide receiver Doug Gabriel to the New England Patriots. At the moment, it is not known what the Raiders will get in return for Gabriel.
The Patriots were seeking another veteran receiver due to Deion Branch's ugly holdout. Chad Jackson is also having some health problems, but regardless, Tom Brady will work with what he has.
Last year, Gabriel caught 37 passes for 554 yards and three touchdowns for Oakland. If the trade holds up, Jerry Porter will probably be moved back into the starting lineup in Oakland.
