NFL Rumors: Oakland Raiders best option for Michael Vick to start quickly?

Free agent Michael Vick has said time and time again he wants to be a starting quarterback.

It’s questionable if he can be an effective one at this point in his career, which will likely have some teams balking at bringing him one.

One team with reported interest though are the Oakland Raiders and according to CBS’ Jason La Canfora, the Raiders likely present the best option for Vick to start.

The Raiders are mulling several veteran quarterbacks, Vick included, and that looks like the best opportunity for Vick to start quickly.

A few days ago, reports leaked suggesting the Raiders, who own the fifth pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, could pass on drafting a ‘franchise’ quarterback and fill other needed positions while signing a stop-gap quarterback for the next year or two.

The market isn’t exactly saturated with high quality quarterbacks given Vick and Matt Cassel appear to be the two biggest names available, so signing Vick (especially given their massive cap space) wouldn’t be the worst thing for Oakland.
