The Oakland Raiders are in the process of trading a late-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft for Houston quarterback Matt Schaub.

The Texans have shown interest in trading the 32 year old veteran; especially after they acquired Ryan Fitzpatrick. Since Oakland is trading for Schaub, they will have to pick up his $10 million salary. While Cleveland also expressed interested in Schaub, they were expected to wait until he was cut.

The Raiders have not shown much confidence in Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor as both were benched multiple times last year. Asked at the NFL Scouting Combine if the Raiders 2014 quarterback was on their roster, Allen answered, "I don't know the answer to that yet." Matt McGloin has shown potential but is still raw at the position. By drafting Schaub, McGloin will have the opportunity to learn under the two-time Pro Bowler.

Oakland holds the number five pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. With the addition of Schaub, a quarterback is becoming less likely with that pick. But it would not surprise me if the Raiders select a quarterback in the later rounds and try to groom him under Schaub.

Schaub is coming off the worst year of his 10-year career throwing 14 interceptions in only 10 games. He was eventually benched for Case Keenum. But it was only five years ago when Schuab led the league in passing with 4,770 yards. He has surpassed 4,000 yards three times in his career.
