The Oakland Raiders have traded for Seattle backup quarterback Matt Flynn in the team's latest change at the game's most important position.

The deal announced by the Seahawks on Monday signals the end to Carson Palmer's tenure in Oakland. Palmer is expected to be dealt to Arizona.

Oakland will send a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a conditional pick in 2015 to Seattle for Flynn, who left Green Bay and signed a lucrative free agent deal with Seattle last year. But he couldn't beat out rookie Russell Wilson for the starting job.

The Raiders also will receive a late-round pick from Arizona if the deal for Palmer is completed.

The Raiders traded a 2012 first-round pick and 2013 second-rounder to Cincinnati for Palmer midway through the 2011 season.
