Satele has been center of Oakland's attention
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
The Satele trade cost Oakland a sixth-round pick and the two sides will swap picks in an undisclosed round. The cost is fairly meager for Oakland as it picks up its starting center. The third-year pro will replace Jake Grove who ironically signed with Miami to replace Satele. Satele, who was a second-round pick in 2007, started every game for Miami in his two seasons there.
The word in Miami was the Dolphins were uncomfortable with how Satele stacked up against the bigger defensive tackles in the AFC East. Satele will have to deal with some formidable defensive tackles in the AFC West beginning with the massive Jamal Williams in San Diego. Kansas City's Glenn Dorsey is also very big and stout.
Still, Oakland has long targeted Satele and now they got him in a very reasonable trade. Satele has long been a favorite of Oakland coach Tom Cable and those in Oakland believe he will be a perfect fit for the Raiders as they try to upgrade their offensive line.
