The Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders agreed to a minor trade on Wednesday afternoon.

According to a report from Ian Rapoport, the Packers shipped wide receiver and returner Trevor Davis to the Raiders. Rapoport failed to mention compensation from the Raiders.

Al Davis would be proud of the move - trading for someone with elite speed.

Rapoport suggested Davis is one of the league's top punt and kick return men and could have an immediate opportunity to compete at wide receiver.

The Raiders released star wide receiver Antonio Brown after a series of unfortunate events, including a confrontation with general manager Mike Mayock.

Brown's departure, coupled with the injury to Tyrell Williams, forced the Raiders to act. Williams suffered a hip pointer during the team's loss to Kansas City over the weekend.

He'll be able to play this weekend, but wide receiver is a position of need for Jon Gruden and company.

Oakland sits at 1-1 on the season after opening with a home win over the Denver Broncos. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs were too much for the Raiders to handle and the team fell to 1-1.

This weekend, the Raiders travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings for a Sunday afternoon showdown.
