NFL rumors: Raiders hint starting QB isn't currently on roster

The Oakland Raiders have plenty of questions surrounding the quarterback position, with many wondering whether or not Terrelle Pryor will be the team’s starter in 2014. With recent comments from Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, it became clear that Pryor is not a man they envision as their starter moving forward.

McKenzie was asked about his team’s Week 1 starter, when he hinted that their ideal starter is not currently on the roster.

“Do I have an idea? I have a really good idea,” McKenzie said, via the Contra Costa Times. “The bottom line still is the guy’s got to come in and compete, show the team, his teammates, the staff, that he can do it.”

The team could be targeting one of the top signal-callers in the 2014 NFL Draft, but they are also believed to have interest in Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.

It will be interesting to see who rolls out with the first team offense for the Raiders season-opener, but it seems clear that Pryor will not be that man.
