Raiders confident in Matt Schaub


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) The Raiders are expecting quarterback Matt Schaub to put his disaster of a 2013 season behind him this year, reports ESPN.

Schaub was benched in his final year with the Texans before being traded to Oakland this offseason.

"I don't have any problems with Matt Schaub's confidence," coach Dennis Allen said. "I think he's in a good frame of mind. I think he's very hungry. I think he's excited about the new opportunity."

Schaub should benefit from a change of scenery, Allen said.

"I think anytime you go into something new, there's a little bit of, maybe it's an increased focus, an increased intensity level, because it is new," Allen said. "You kind of force yourself out of your comfort zone a little bit. I think he's done that. I think he's been very focused and very driven this offseason and I don't think there's any question that he's got something that he wants to go out and prove."


Allen to 'ride or die' with Matt Schaub


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) Raiders coach Dennis Allen is counting on quarterback Matt Schaub this season, reports ESPN.

The report says about Allen that "Schaub is his guy." Schaub has reportedly looked "impressive" in the offseason non-padded practices open to the media.

The Raiders do have the option of turning to rookie Derek Carr. But, per the report, "Allen appears ready to ride or die with Schaub, for better or worse."


Derek Carr could push Matt Schaub for No. 1 job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr could push Matt Schaub for the starting job, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Coach Dennis Allen said "everything is written in pencil."

Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Carr has been "better than we thought he would be." Carr came in behind Schaub and second-year player Matt McGloin during practice but has already started taking away second-team snaps from McGloin.

"I really, really like him," Olson said of Carr. "Everybody knew he was accurate, but he is more accurate than we thought. ... We'll have to wait and see how he does against a live rush, but so far his intelligence, accuracy and quickness in getting the ball out has been excellent."


Matt Schaub psyched to have 'more control' in Oakland


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) New Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub said Thursday that he's looking forward to having "more control" while under center in Oakland according to the Contra Costa Times

"To come to an offense where the coach is looking to give you more freedom, and looking to give you more control of things," Schaub said when asked what he's looking forward to. "I had that in some aspects in Houston, but there are things I'm being asked to do here that I didn't have control of in Houston. I would have loved to, but we just weren't in control of it. To now be in that position, and being the quarterback, that's such a great place to be because you can get everyone on the same page. You can get into a great play, a better play that you had called."


Raiders 'firmly committed' to Matt Schaub over Derek Carr


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) The Raiders are "firmly committed" to Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback this season, and it would take something "catastrophic" for second-round pick Derek Carr to start, reports ESPN's Jim Trotter. Schaub, who turns 33 in June, threw 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions with the Texans last season.

Raiders draft Derek Carr in second round


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 36 pick in the NFL Draft, the Raiders selected quarterback Derek Carr from Fresno State. Carr is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Matt Schaub.

Carr, the younger brother of former No. 1 overall pick David Carr, is 6-foot-3, 214-pounds. He has a strong arm and put up 5,083 passing yards and 50 touchdowns while completing 68.9 percent of his passes as a senior.

Over four years with the Bulldogs he played in 43 games and threw for 12,626 yards and 111 touchdowns with just 23 interceptions. He will likely sit as a rookie behind Schaub barring injury or poor play by the veteran, but Carr could be the starter in 2015.


MJD: Matt Schaub can take us to Super Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Perhaps it's wishful thinking, but new Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew said Matt Schaub is a Super Bowl-caliber quarterback.

"You can definitely (make the Super Bowl with Matt Schaub at quarterback)," Jones-Drew said on SiriusXM Radio. "(Schaub) has something to prove this year. ... I know Matt Schaub is a guy who can lead us."

Schaub threw 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions with the Texans last year, tossing a pick-six in four straight games.


Matt Schaub hopes Raiders sign DeSean Jackson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) New Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub said he'd love to throw to receiver DeSean Jackson, who was cut by the Eagles last week. "I'd love to see (DeSean Jackson) out there," Schaub said on Sirius XM NFL Radio. "He's a phenomenal talent, a great player. The times I've been around him, a great guy.

"I think he can add a lot to any team, especially ours in Oakland and really think he can a big help to what we're trying to build and I'd love to have him at my disposal as a receiver."

Jackson is visiting the Redskins on Monday night and Tuesday, and reportedly has no other visits scheduled. However, the Raiders have more cap room and could pay Jackson more than Washington.


Matt Schaub gets no guaranteed money in 2015


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub will make $8 million in guaranteed money this year, but his $5.5 million base salary for 2015 is not guaranteed, according to the Ross Tucker Podcast. It's an indication Schaub could be a one-year stopgap in Oakland.

Browns considered Matt Schaub, but 'comfortable' with Brian Hoyer


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Browns general manager Ray Farmer admitted the team considered trading for quarterback Matt Schaub before the Raiders acquired him, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. However, Farmer insisted he's "comfortable" with Brian Hoyer entering the season.

Cleveland still is expected to draft a quarterback at Nos. 4 or 26 overall.


Dennis Allen: Matt Schaub is our starting quarterback


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) Dennis Allen has already deemed newly acquired Matt Schaub as the Raiders starting quarterback. That comes as no surprise after the team absorbed his $11 million salary for 2014 despite his miserable performance last year.

"We feel very confident that he is going to be able to come in and function in that role and be outstanding for us," Allen told NFL.com. "Obviously, we love having competition within the team, but right now Matt Schaub is our starting quarterback."

Allen added that he believes the 33-year-old Schaub could start with his new team for another three or four years.


Matt Schaub officially dealt from Houston to Oakland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) It's official - quarterback Matt Schaub is a Raider. The Texans have traded him to Oakland for the fifth pick in the sixth round of the May draft.

Schaub will take over as the starting quarterback for the Raiders. Houston will almost assuredly use its first overall selection on a quarterback, which is rumored to be Blake Bortles.

The 33-year-old Schaub would have commanded far more had he not struggled mightily in 2013. He completed 219 of 358 passes for 2,310 yards, 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He set a dubious NFL record by tossing a pick-six in four consecutive games.


Matt Schaub reportedly on the way to Oakland for physical


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Only a failed physical stands in the way of the Raiders completing a trade with the Texans that would make Matt Schaub their starting quarterback, per the San Francisco Chronicle. Oakland has dealt a late-round pick to make it happen.

The trade is the latest move by general manager Reggie McKenzie in an attempt to piece together a winning team in 2014. The 10 players he has signed in March are all at least 29 years old.


Report: Raiders set to trade late pick for Matt Schaub


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Raiders will trade a late-round draft pick to acquire Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, a source has told ESPN.

Such a deal would likely ensure that Houston takes a quarterback (reportedly Blake Bortles) with the first overall pick and the Raiders bypass that position with the first selection in the 2014 draft. It will also place the Texans about $10 million under the cap, allowing them to improve their struggling defensive line.

No announcement of a deal has been made.

Schaub hit rock-bottom last year, throwing for 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions before losing his starting job. He threw for a pick-six in an NFL-record four straight games.


Report: Raiders eyeing Matt Schaub as next QB


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Matt Schaub's days with the Texans could be numbered. The Texans signed veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a two-year deal on Thursday, who will likely assume Schaub's role once he is out of the picture.

The Raiders appear to want Schaub as their next quarterback, according to NFL Media. The Jets and Browns are also possible suitors for the 32-year-old veteran. However, team are not expected to take any actions until Schaub is waived by the Texans.

Report: Texans pushing to trade Matt Schaub


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) The Texans are continuing their efforts to trade quarterback Matt Schaub and his $14.5 million cap hit, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Raiders and Browns "have some interest," the report said.

Houston could release Schaub if it can't trade him.


Report: Raiders most interested in Matt Schaub


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The veteran quarterback the Raiders covet is Matt Schaub, reports the Oakland Tribune. However, the Texans have not released Schaub so Oakland cannot pursue him.

Three teams reportedly interested in Matt Schaub


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The Browns, Raiders and Jets are all possible suitors for quarterback Matt Schaub if he is released by the Texans, according to the NFL Network.

The Browns and Raiders both have top five picks in the 2014 draft and are rumored to be interested in drafting one of the top three quarterbacks coming out. But the signing of Schaub could result in them going in a different direction.

The Jets will mostly likely be interested in having Schaub compete with second-year quarterback Geno Smith.


Browns could show interest in Matt Schaub


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Quarterback Matt Schaub could sign with the Browns, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

The report says the Browns want competition for Brian Hoyer, and Schaub already knows this system inside out from his time with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Houston. The Texans are expected to release Schaub this offseason.


Report: Matt Schaub doesn't want to back up Geno Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Texans quarterback Matt Schaub isn't interested in signing with the Jets to become Geno Smith's backup, reports the New York Daily News. The paper expects Houston to release Schaub, but an earlier ESPN report indicated the Texans might hold on to the 32-year-old.

Texans could keep Matt Schaub in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) The Texans might keep Matt Schaub in 2014, reports ESPN. Even though they plan to draft a quarterback, Schaub could still be part of their plans this season.

The report says new coach Bill O'Brien knows what he wants in a quarterback and isn't publicly closing the door that he'll find that in Schaub.


Matt Schaub impressed with Bill O'Brien


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) Texans quarterback Matt Schaub said Wednedsay he has met new head coach Bill O'Brien and already got a good impression, reports the team's official website.

"I met with him very briefly," Schaub said. "Just a short conversation. But it was very productive. It was while he was still trying to get the rest of the staff together and go through that process. As well as transitioning to Houston. ... Very enthusiastic, and a great coach. Just very intelligent. Knows football. Knows offense and knows the game. Very productive. Very intense about what he does."


Jets should have options at quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) The Jets are expected to be in the market for a quarterback to compete with Geno Smith this season, and ESPN speculates Michael Vick, Matt Schaub and Kirk Cousins are three potential veteran options.

For Vick, who is a free agent, there is a familiarity with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's system when the two were in Philadelphia. Schaub could be cut or traded by the Texans, and he might need a change of scenery after last year's disaster. And Cousins could be someone the Jets target via trade as a young veteran with upside.

Smith is still expected to be the starter this year, but a lot will depend on who is brought in for competition.


Raiders to kick the tires on Matt Schaub?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/4/2014) The Texans are expected to release quarterback Matt Schaub at some point, and when they do, the Raiders could be interested in signing him. The National Football Post reports that such a move could be a challenge for Oakland since Schaub doesn't exactly fit what the Raiders do schematically, but there's no question he's still a better passer than anyone they currently have on the roster. 

Playing over 10 games in 2013, Schaub completed 219 of 358 passes for 2,310 yards and a career-worst 6.45 yards per attempt. He threw 14 interceptions versus 10 touchdowns. 


Matt Schaub goes quietly in like final start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Texans quarterback Matt Schaub ended his season in the most fitting manner Sunday, tossing a pair of interceptions in a 16-10 loss to the Titans in Week 17.

Starting in place of an injured Case Keenum, Schaub completed 22 of 34 passes for 229 yards in the game, but struggled to take care of the ball yet again. Schaub was intercepted twice in the game, and failed to find the end zone in the loss.

Schaub finishes the season with 14 interceptions, one off his career-high. Of course, he attempted just 324 passes, compared to 583 when he set his high in 2009. He passed for 2,310 yards and 10 touchdowns, while completing 61.1 percent of his passes.

With the Texans locking up the No. 1 pick in the draft Sunday, Schaub may have played his last game as the team's starter. He was benched at times this season, and the Texans could look for a new franchise quarterback via the college ranks.
