ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Raiders have acquired Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans for an undisclosed draft pick, giving the quarterback a second chance after he lost his starting job with the Texans last season.
Schaub comes in as the presumptive starter ahead of Terrelle (teh-REHL’) Pryor and Matt McGloin, who were inconsistent last year as Oakland had a second straight four-win season.
The 32-year old Schaub was Houston’s starter from 2007 until last season, when he was benched in favor of Case Keenum.
Houston has the first overall pick in this year’s draft, which includes top quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel.
