Sitting at 4-3 with a home game against the Buccaneers lowly defense ahead of them Andrew Billings Jersey White , the Bengals are still in a decent position to accomplish something with their season. The 1-5 Raiders cant quite say the same thing, and their head coach Jon Gruden probably knows it.Before the start of the season, Gruden dealt away his best player Khalil Mack to the Bears in the blockbuster deal of the year. Without their 2014 first-round pick who was due for a gigantic new contract on the books anymore, conventional wisdom told us the Raiders were going to use that money to pay for their 2015 first-round pick Amari Cooper. Then trade rumors regarding Cooper started to surface and Gruden attempted to downplay them like any coach. But we know what happened next.Cooper was traded to the receiver-needy Cowboys for a first-round pick, giving the Raiders three of them including their own for the 2019 NFL Draft. If it wasnt obvious before, its clear Gruden has his eyes on Las Vegas and Las Vegas only for when the Raiders move their in 2020, when he will still have eight years left on his contract. So, who else is not in Grudens long-term plan? Well, if we asked Gruden, hed say hes done acquiring draft picks for players he doesnt want.But were not so easily tricked.The Raiders are not the only team that has been and will continue to be busy before next weeks trade deadline, but they are a team that possesses an asset the Bengals could certainly use.Tight end Jared Cook is on the second year of his two-year contract with the Raiders, so hes not one of the free agents that Gruden brought in. At 31 years old Jeff Driskel Jersey White , he doesnt offer much long-term potential as a 10-year veteran. Cook is the Raiders leading receiver in every basic statistic besides touchdowns and yards per reception, which hes second on the team in both. Aside from two outstanding games though, Cook has been just serviceable. In his last two games, he has 30 yards on eight targets.The Raiders are 23rd in adjusted net yards per attempt and expected points on offense with Cook being essentially their No. 1 receiving option. They have just Lee Smith and Derrick Carrier behind him, but does Cook being around for the teams second half of the season really mean anything? He could mean something to the Bengals.With Mason Schreck being the latest tight end to go down, the Bengals are left with just C.J. Uzomah, Matt Lengel, and Jordan Franks, who was promoted off the practice squad following Schrecks designation to injured reserve. The price for Cooks in a trade would also presumably be minimal. Aside from the Cooper transaction, trades from around the league have consisted entirely of day three draft picks. Running back Carlos Hyde was traded to the Jaguars for a fifth-round pick. Cornerback Eli Apple was traded to the Saints for a fourth-round pick and a seventh-round pick in 2020. And those were just underachieving players. All-Pro nose tackle Damon Harrison was traded to the Lions for a fifth-round pick. In this market, Cook isnt worth anything more than a fifth-round pick. To the Bengals, thats valuable capital Womens John Ross Jersey , but in reality, it isnt. Just look at this year. The Bengals had six draft picks beyond the fourth round of the draft. Only one, cornerback Darius Phillips, is on the active roster right now, and it took him five weeks to get on the field for the defense.Cook would be able to come in and provide immediate depth for Uzomah for practically no cost. With his ability to stress defenses vertically, he may even be a better replacement for Tyler Eifert. What it comes down to is whether or not the Bengals believe they can truly compete for something meaningful from where they stand right now. Mike Brown and his staff does not give away draft picks very often, but there arent many better options in the short-term.Despite Grudens words, the Raiders are selling to anyone whos listening. The Bengals mayve been screwed at the trade deadline last year, but they can accomplish something this time around in saving Cooks from the fire sale thats surrounding him.Steelers WR Antonio Brown has a pair of lawsuits filed against him including almost hitting a toddler with furniture It has really just been a year for Pittsburgh drama. At this point, Ive started running out of popcorn to watch the show, but wide receiver Antonio Brown is forcing me to make a trip to the store to restock with his most recent allegations. This time, it appears Brown has gotten in trouble with the law.Brown has two lawsuits filed against him relating to an incident where he allegedly threw furniture from his 14th floor condo in Florida in April Clark Harris Jersey White , according to Tom Schad of USA Today. The owner of the condo is seeking the cost of damages created by Brown, who was leasing the furnished condo for $35,000 a month.The second lawsuit was filed because Brown allegedly almost hit a 22-month-old child. The boy was walking with his grandfather when a couple of vases and an ottoman landed near the two. The boys father is filing the suit claiming his son has had signs of fear and anxiety. He also says his son has had night terrors every night.Brown has yet to comment on the story, so we really dont know what would provoke him to throw furniture from the 14th floor of a building. Then again, what excuse could a person have for doing that?For a guy who claimed he was tired of not having his privacy from the media and even wondered if he was really free, I feel like throwing furniture out of a building is not the route to take in order to stay out of the news or worrying about waking up to Google alerts about yourself.Brown seems to like to play both sides. He is a huge social media guy. He often posts videos of his workouts, family and even ads on occasion.What Brown doesnt seem to understand is that being that big of a name comes with a cost of people actually paying attention to you. You also have to wonder if this will have any impact on the perception of him from around the league (it wont) as he has been sort of built up as one of the poster children for the NFL.This is just the most recent example of drama for the Steelers this season. It started with LeVeon Bell refusing to play under his franchise tag in order to preserve himself as he looks to hit free agency. Now he is saying that he will return to the team in Week 7. Then there was Brown tweeting trade me after he was frustrated by a fan questioning his value to the team. He then skipped practice on Monday following that.The Steelers will be visiting Cincinnati this Sunday, and it seems the teams arent where many thought the two would be at this point. In fact many wouldve wagered the records of these two teams would probably be flipped since the Steelers are only 2-2-1 (and are really lucky to not be 2-3). The defense has been a real issue for them, and the fact they havent had Bell has been an issue in a few games as James Conner has had good games, but he isnt as consistent. There seems to be a real chance that the Bengals could make a statement Sunday. Update: Brown has commented on his legal drama.
