Matt Schaub Evaluation (with gametape vs Chargers & Seahawks)

As you may have heard, former 2-time Pro Bowler Matt Schaub has been traded to the Oakland Raiders for just a 6th round pick.

In my opinion, this is a spectacular trade. Considering that the chances of either Teddy Bridgewater or Blake Bortles falling to no. 5 isn't that great and the abysmal quarterback free agent market, Schaub could have legitimately have been the best quarterback option available to the Raiders, and the fact that they only gave up a 6th rounder? It's a steal.

Many seem to believe that Schaub's contract is an issue, but truth be told, it really isn't. The new NFL rule forces the teams to spend at least 89% of their cap space, and the Raiders were no where close, so getting him doesn't hurt. Long term, it doesn't hurt the team either, as no money in Schaub's deal is guranteed beyond this year. So essentially, if Schaub doesn't former to the expectations of the Raiders management, it's either a pay-cut or get cut.

If you want to get a closer look at Schaub last year (and also how awful the Texan offensive line was), here's his every passing plays against the Seahawks in week 4 and one against the Chargers in week 1.
