... will likely be the Raiders' new starting center.

NFL.com and even the Dolphins' website is reporting that the trade involved undisclosed draft picks, but 2 Minutes to Midnight Green has learned that the trade was for a sixth round pick and a swap of fourth round picks.

The Raiders will now hold the 26th selection in the fourth round with the Dolphins taking Oakland's 8th selection in the same round.

Satele was a second round pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2007.

He has played in and started all 32 games since coming into the NFL.

Satele should go into Oakland with a clear path to the starting role for the Raiders. He has proven to be a quality starter during his short time in the league.

Good pickup for the Raiders. It seems like the Dolphins feel like they have another choice at center, possibly free-agent pickup Jake Grove.

In an interesting twist, Grove just happened to be Oakland's starter in 2008.
