4. WR DeAndre Carter

Carter has barely played any offensive snaps for the Raiders through four games this season, with two catches for 21 yards. But he has been active as a return man, relatively speaking as the NFL tries to eliminated those plays, and last season with the Chargers he had 46 receptions. In 2021 with Washington, he had 10 rushing attempts. So there's some multi-purpose appeal here.

When he has had the opportunity, Carter has shown some ability as a deep threat despite being small (5-foot-8). If the Raiders won't even try to use him, maybe the Lions would have a hint of interest and part with an inconsequential late-round pick.

3. CB Marcus Peters

After plenty of rumors and reports tying him to them, Peters finally signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Raiders in July. His best days are behind him at 30 years old (62.2 Pro Football Focus grade so far this season), but he remains an every snap player and he's a veteran some contending teams in need of cornerback help could see a fit with.

Peters also recently joined the unhappiness party in Las Vegas, liking an Instagram post that advocated for McDaniels to be fired. That's hardly something that could lead to a trade, but if the Raiders keep losing this month a player such as he, a little older and on a cheap one-year contract, would be a prime trade candidate.

The Lions' don't really need a cornerback, per se, as long as Emmanuel Moseley stays healthy and other key guys (Cameron Sutton, Jerry Jacobs) do as well. But there's also something to the idea of never having enough capable corners, and Moseley has not exactly been a picture or durability in his career. So as the coming weeks go on, Peters could be available and a solid fit in Detroit.
