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.
