Jake Peavy is still on Cardinals back burner according to a major league source.
The Cardinals are one of the teams poised to be buyer's at the upcoming deadline. They have an excess of outfield talent, and ideally would like to replace Carlos Martinez -- who's struggled mightily of late and isn't going deep into games -- at the back of the rotation. They have the goods to acquire just about anyone, but John Mozeliak isn't the type of GM typically willing to sell the farm for a vacation rental. ANALYST:
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
