What you need to know about the latest on the RGIII saga

AUSTIN, Texas — AUSTIN — The Raiders have reportedly reached an agreement to acquire the majority of the Los Angeles Rams’ roster and possibly their first round pick from the New York Jets.

The deal is reported to be worth approximately $8.5 million per year.

Raiders president Amy Trask tweeted the deal was finalized Friday morning, and the team has not announced a timeline for the team to begin trading its players.

The Los Angeles Times reported Friday morning that the deal will allow the Raiders to add five players, but not necessarily any of them until the 2018 NFL draft.

Los Angeles will likely take at least three players from its draft picks to the Raiders, including the second overall pick.

The Raiders could move back to the third round in 2018 if the Rams do not acquire their pick.

The Rams have the eighth pick in the 2018 draft.

The team is expected to move back down to the fourth round, where the Raiders could select either quarterback Carson Wentz or running back Latavius Murray.

Los Angeles is expected, as well, to draft either cornerback Darrelle Revis or defensive end Malik Jackson in the first round.
