Coach Jon Gruden ESPN said the Raiders will not trade anyone before the deadline for next week, but there is always a deal price. The Raiders are planning a brighter future, armed with raw materials to support this goal.
Even with Mack in Chicago and Cooper in Dallas, the Raiders still have a rostering value that could be attractive to other teams.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie finally said that no player is untouchable.
Carr could be at this stage. It seems unlikely that it will be moved during the season, unless it is an overwhelming offer that the Raiders simply can not refuse.
Gruden publicly supported Carr in his first year with him, but that should be considered a Provide-It season for the Fresno State product. He has all the physical tools to be a quality NFL quarterback. He also has a relatively bearable contract with already paid guarantees. That could make him a tradable option in off season or beyond.
The Raiders could also close Carr's deal for $ 7.5 million in dead money next year, a sum that drops $ 2.5 million over the next two years.
The Raiders have more options for trades before the close on October 30. Let's look at five of them:
The Raiders reportedly shopped for the first round of the first round of 2016, although they are looking for a relatively high payout for someone who has been disappointed since leaving West Virginia University. He has an Achilles tendon injury, but even when he was well, Joseph was the # 4 Raider behind Marcus Gilchrist, Reggie Nelson, and Erik Harris.
Joseph has talent and great repartee, but it is possible that the Raiders will take a bid for him before the deadline. He could actually be the most likely player to be dealt, especially if he is healthy enough to play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
The veteran expressed his disappointment after he was inferior to the Seattle Seahawks techniques favored by Raiders defensive coach. Gruden reacted critically in public.
Melvin has a one-year deal, could be on the deep chart and is probably not part of a long-term Raiders plan. A corner-cornered hungry team might want someone solid as a Colt in 2017, and the Raiders could give younger players experience with snaps previously intended for Melvin.
DE Bruce Irvin
The experienced Edge Rusher is said to make $ 8 million this year and $ 9 million in the next, and his role has been reduced as the season wears off. He is primarily a situational pass rusher at this stage and could find a home in a team that needs someone who can come behind the quarterback.
Irvin could easily fit elsewhere given the nature of his position. He could not fetch much, but he could work as a hire for a crew that can easily cut him in off-season.
CB Gareon Conley
The Ohio State product was benched last week for Daryl Worley, but he has great talent with some fixable mistakes in his game. He is under control for up to three more seasons and could make a good choice when the Raiders are ready to part with him.
NFL Network reports that the Raiders would work with him for at least another year, but everything is possible for the right price.
