The Las Vegas Raiders are still on the search for a quarterback. The deadline is closely approaching on whether they can trade Derek Carr or be forced to release the veteran.
With the Raiders needing a signal caller to help lead the franchise, the central place to start would be the draft. However, mock drafts across the media landscape keep going in other directions.
“If the Raiders go the veteran route to replace Derek Carr, adding more O-line help could be the play here. Johnson is powerful and loose with starting experience at guard and tackle.”
It could make sense if the Raiders do bring in a veteran such as Aaron Rodgers, but that route might cost the first-round pick in the first place. The draft and free agency can’t come fast enough.
