In The Trenches with Ian Beckles: The Raiders Get Antonio Brown & NFL Free Agency

This week on “In The Trenches,” Ian Beckles kicks off the show discussing the weekend’s big news, which was the trade of WR Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders that saw the Pittsburgh Steelers get a 3rd and 5th round pick. Ian explains a million reasons why this trade is a bad move for Oakland, the biggest being their head coach Jon Gruden.

Then, Ian moves into NFL Free Agency and how it pertains to the Buccaneers. After locking up LT Donovan Smith to a new three year deal, it isn’t likely that MLB Kwon Alexander nor WR Adam Humphries will return to the Pewter and Red. GM Jason Licht and new HC Bruce Arians have been saying that they’d like to keep their own guys but the problem is if you resign the talent that you’ve already had, how do you get better?

That said, there is one name out there that’s available that could make an instant impact to this Buccaneers roster: HB Leveon Bell.
