NFL Free Agent Rumors: Oakland Raiders most interested in Matt Schaub?

It’s been reported for a few weeks now that the Oakland Raiders may opt to not draft a quarterback with their first round selection and prefer to use a ‘stop-gap’ quarterback to bridge themselves.

The quarterback at the top of their list? Apparently Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. Only problem? Schuab is still a member of the Texans organization, who according to the rumor mill, aren’t planning to release him.

That may force the Raiders to trade for the signal caller or possibly call the Texans bluff and wait to see if they do end up releasing their quarterback.

Regardless, it appears the Raiders preferred free agent quarterback target is Schaub.

Like it or not, the veteran QB Raiders have most interest in at moment is not yet a free agent Matt Schaub of Houston.

The list of available quarterbacks isn’t exactly sexy with Schaub, Michael Vick, Josh Freeman and Kevin Kolb likely the best among the group.

Still – I’m not sure Schaub is the guy the vast majority of Raider Nation was hoping for.
