Report: Raiders interested in trade for Matt Schaub

According to a Houston radio station Sports Radio 610, the Texans and Raiders have been in serious discussions about working out a trade for quarterback Matt Schaub. NFL Network's Ian Rapport has the Raiders and Cleveland Browns as teams that have shown interest in such a trade. The Texans are expected to cut Schaub if a trade cannot be worked out.

The cost of trading for Schaub would be taking on his $10.5 million salary and a low round draft pick. Though, the Raiders would likely seek to have Schaub agree to a restructure before the trade goes through.

The 32-year-old quarterback is coming off his worst season in his 10-year career. In only 10 games before being benched in favor of Case Keenum, Schaub threw 14 interceptions to only 10 touchdowns. But it was only five years ago when Schaub led the NFL with 4,770 passing yards. Having surpassed 4,000 yards three times in his career, Schaub has the experience to lead a young but talented offense.

The Raiders staff has not shown much confidence in Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor; both were benched at some point in the 2013 season. When asked at the NFL combine if the Raiders 2014 quarterback is currently on their roster, Allen said that he "doesn't know the answer to that yet." Schaub looks to be the best veteran answer to that question out there.
