Oakland Raiders Likely to Add A Veteran Quarterback


The Oakland Raiders struggled at the quarterback position this year. The team started out the year with Terrelle Pryor running the show and then finished the season with Matt McGloin calling the shots, then they went back to Pryor one more time at the end of the year. Next season, someone else will likely join in on that carousel. Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie expects to add a veteran quarterback onto the roster to join the competition, per Scott Bair.

The Raiders could use some stability at the position and adding a veteran to join in on the mix could help. There are already rumors about Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick. Other free agent options could be Josh McCown or Josh Freeman. None of the options sound real stable, but there is some potential there.

The team needs to add more weapons on offense. Rashard Jennings will be a good running back for the team, but there are not many other options for the quarterbacks on offense. Add  some playmakers onto the team, add some protection up front and then you would see some production from the quarterback position.

    I wouldn’t want Freeman, Vick is just a hit away from spending the year on IR, so that leaves McCown who is no doubt the best of the three, so I’m sure Reggie will find a way to screw things up, and we will end up with the useless sack of S$$T Vick.

    Could we try tebow? Oakland is usually a great place for QBs to find their place, maybe become another
    Jim Plunkett?

    • Angel Becerra

      Tebow? You can’t be serious…

  • Angel

    Vick is better and faster than Pryor. Pryor said it himself so don’t give me sht..
    And it’d be interesting to see Vick against Andy Reid.

  • Angel

    Sign Vick and draft Manziel?? Pryor back up?

    Build around McGloin? Put weapons around him, get Jimmy Graham and draft a WR.
    Or draft an O-lineman in every round of the draft for the fk of it? Cause we play NFC West next year and we should just give up………. Not even talking about our tough division. What’re you gonna do Reggie? Huh, Reggie? ANSWER ME!!

  • Angel

    Right now I don’t see us winning 3 games next year…..

  • Silvia Arredondo

    If we can’t draft a good QB then get some good pass protectors and pass destroyers. Then get a veteren QB so McGloin can learn from him and start pacjing some good receivers.

  • Eric Kench

    Sign Freeman! He’ll make our receivers look like Pro Bowlers!

  • Ricky Bobby

    I can go for Tebow, bring in VY, trade MM to Houston.
