If you didn't already know, Jay Cutler was just re-signed to a 7-year deal with the Chicago Bears. So he is now off the radar as a quarterback option for the Raiders and pretty much makes the QB free agent class irrelevant. Does this put more pressure on the Raiders to draft a QB with the 5th overall pick, or do they try and grind it out one more year with Matt McGloin or Terrelle Pryor?
As of right now Mock Drafts have the Raiders doing all kinds of things from drafting DE Jadaveon Clowney or LB/DE Anthony Barr to a host of quarterbacks including UCF's Blake Bortles, UCLA's Brett Hundley, and Fresno State's Derek Carr.
With Cutler no longer an option, does that mean the Raiders are going to take a QB for sure? Help is needed on both sides of the ball in the trenches along with getting a pass rusher.
They could try and sign someone like Matt Schaub or Josh Freeman but I think that just promotes bringing in mediocrity at the most important position on the field. Weigh in on what you think, I never said the Raiders were going to sign Cutler but he would've been a huge upgrade compared to the QB's currently on the roster.
