McCown has been the subject of trade rumors in the past in regards to Oakland but a deal has never been able to be struck.
McCown would become the team's starter in 2007 - and as a free agent in 2008 he beleives the move would be good for his career. It appears things are heading towards a close - one of several deals the Raiders are working on.
Oakland is still trying to trade Randy Moss and the belief is he may end up in New England. The deal will depend on Al Davis' belief that he has received proper compensation.
