According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Oakland Raiders have made defensive end Justin Tuck available in advance of Tuesday's 4pm EST trade deadline.

As reported by Ed Valentine of SBNation, "Cole said it was "absolute fact" that the 0-7 Raiders are willing to trade Tuck, a 10-year veteran who left the Giants after nine years when they wouldn't match, or come close to matching, the two-year $10 million deal he got from Oakland. Tuck can still play. He has a +10.1 Pro Football Focus grade, second-best on the Raiders defense. The 31-year-old has seen his playing time decreasing, however, as the Raiders begin looking to the future."

What the Oakland Raiders could acquire in such a trade remains to be seen, but it won't likely amount to more than a late-round draft pick taking Tuck's age into account.

Regardless, things should be very interesting around the Silver and Black's headquarters prior to Tuesday's deadline.
