The Raiders are reportedly in talks with the Commanders for a major trade deal, dubbed the “Godfather” proposal, aimed at acquiring a new quarterback.

The Washington Commanders seem set on drafting a quarterback with the second overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Raiders have a significant need for a quarterback and are showing strong interest in LSU’s Jayden Daniels.

However, the Raiders face a challenge as the Commanders are likely to select Daniels if they retain their pick. To secure Daniels, the Raiders would need to make a compelling offer to convince Washington to trade down. Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal suggested a bold proposal, dubbed the “Godfather” offer, for the Raiders to present to the Commanders.

Bonsignore proposed, “One scenario would involve the Raiders sending Washington the 13th pick, their second-round pick, their 2025 and 2026 first-round picks, and a 2026 third-round pick.”

The Commanders are in the midst of a complete overhaul under new ownership, a new head coach, and a new general manager. With significant roster needs and no playoff wins since 2005, acquiring five picks from the Raiders could kickstart their rebuilding process. They would still have the opportunity to select a different quarterback later in this year’s draft.
