Poll: Who Will Be the Raiders Starting Quarterback Next Season?


Here is what we know about the Oakland Raiders quarterback situation right now:

  • Carson Palmer is the current starter, and will be the starter unless he is released.
  • The Raiders have made it clear that they will release Palmer unless he takes a pay cut.
  • Carson Palmer is highly unlikely to restructure his contract and refused a $3 million slash in salary.
  • The only other quarterback on the roster is Terrelle Pryor, who has one career NFL start under his belt.
  • The Raiders are on the verge of trading for Matt Flynn, who barely played last season after being second-in-line to Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay the previous four seasons.
  • The Raiders have the No. 3 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, and have been rumored to have interested in selecting QB Geno Smith.

So, Raider Nation, you tell us. Who is your starting quarterback next season?

    T Pryor. All he’s done is win from high school to college. Some players are just better on the field than in practice. He needs the chance. He couldn’t possibly be another Russell. His first career start, he scores three TDs with a limited playbook and no running game. GIVE HIM A CHANCE!!!!!

      Good point. He deserves a shot.

    Terrelle Pryor

    Team Pryor let him play and show he’s ready…

    Looks like Pryor in the lead here. Would Matt Flynn be a good option?
