The Oakland Raiders acquired QB Matt Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for two undisclosed draft picks, according to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer.

He’s also reporting it appears now that a trade between the Raiders and Arizona Cardinals for QB Carson Palmer will happen.

Flynn is now expected to be the Raiders’ new starting QB, and the Cards will likely have Palmer starting for them.

Palmer recently turned down a $3 million pay cut from his $13 million base salary, a clear indication has no desire to return to Oakland, where he’s gone 8-16 as a starter, and is now being replaced in favor of Flynn. The Seahawks originally signed Flynn to a three-year, $19.5 million contract on March 21, 2012. That deal included $10 million in guaranteed money, including $2 million of Flynn’s $5.25 million base salary for the 2013 season, but he ultimately was  beat-out for the starting gig by Russell Wilson.

By trading Flynn, the Seahawks will save $5.25 million in cash and $3.25 million in salary cap space for 2013.
