NFL Rumors: Oakland Raiders interested in Josh Freeman, Michael Vick


On Saturday, a report surfaced that Houston Texans’ quarterback Matt Schaub and New York Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez topped the list as far as Oakland Raiders’ quarterback targets go.

It appears those are not the only two veterans and former long-time starting quarterbacks the Raiders are looking at.

According to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer, the Raiders are also interested in former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Josh Freeman.

Breer also believes the Raiders have some interest in Michael Vick, but have made the other veterans a priority over Vick.

Freeman was a disaster last season and the Buccaneers parted ways with him last season after he played in just three games.

He, was, however,  a four-year starter before last season. He wound up playing one game for the Vikings before suffering a concussion.

Vick lost his job with the Eagles to Nick Foles, who led the Eagles to a division title and a playoff appearance.

    No thank you.

    Please god not josh freeman omg no no no no

    • iceman4

      I agree; he’s awful

  • Martin Mclure

    I say sign freeman, he would be reunited with his old oc. Mcgloin can step in if we need him too. Not a great qb class either.

    Vick over all

    • Valentin Viera

      Thank You! We need Vick!

    I believe Matt McGloin could do the job out right, all he needs are the tools and a good offense of line
    back up buy a decent running game and the passing game as well, and it looks like Reggies putting together
    a great defense, and I’m sure will have am awesome draft, don’t count Matt out just yet he’s going to have
    a great training camp and will emerge the starting QB when the season starts.

      matt mcgloin went undrafted for a reason. He was just ok in college and like Lincoln Kennedy said often, he doesn’t look at his WR he stares them down. He’s a backup at best.

  • KloverJane

    At a loss here.

  • Valentin Viera

    VIck!! He should be first on the damn list! We gives us the best chance NOW! we have pryor and mcgloin there if we need them

    Kirk cousins is making 390 k; he’s young and has had some good games. He wants to start. Give a #3 and I think Washington would do it. Freeman is awful; Schaub has no confidence and Vick is a step away from being on the DL.

    If cousins doesn’t cut it you are not paying much. There are 4 qb’s in next years first round coming out. The Raiders had the 2nd easiest schedule in the NFL last year and if you look at wins and losses they now have the hardest.
