The NFL trade deadline is fast approaching and several teams are reportedly on the hunt to bring talent to their respective teams.

Earlier this week a report suggested the New York Jets put wide receiver Robby Anderson on the trade block. It didn't take long for a team to show interest in the speedy wideout.

According to Connor Hughes of the Athletic, the Oakland Raiders are interested in trading for the former Temple standout.

The Raiders are among the teams interested in trading for Jets receiver Robby Anderson. Price has to be right. Jets won’t just give RA away," Hughes reported on Friday afternoon.

Through six games, Anderson racked up 17 catches for 266 yards and one touchdown. A majority of that production came in the Jets' upset win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. Anderson caught five passes for 125 yards and his lone touchdown on the year.

Oakland has been hit by a rash of injuries to the receiving corps this season - not to mention the loss of Antonio Brown. Tyrell Williams missed the past few games as he battles a foot injury.

The trade deadline closes on Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. ET. Will any significant trades be made before then?
