NFL Free Agency: Oakland Raiders Interested in Signing Veteran Quarterback


The Oakland Raiders are interested in bringing in a veteran quarterback to help mentor their youngsters, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. 

With two young quarterbacks in Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor expected to compete for the starting job, adding an experienced guy to show them the ropes may be to their benefit.

This may explain their interest in Seneca Wallace, the former Browns and Seahawks quarterback who is slated to visit the Raiders. 

Drafted in 2005 by the Seahawks, Wallace backed up Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle. He was a starter for a portion of 2008, when he threw for 1,532 yards and 11 touchdowns in 10 games.

Wallace was traded to the Browns in 2010, where he was trumped by injuries for two seasons before being released after the 2012 preseason.

    Garbage. Wait for the draft next year. We need an Aaron Rogers, not a leftover

  • Tim Martindale

    Man just get one in the 6th

    They just want to add depth in the competition at the QB position. That’s what they did/do in Green Bay. Seneca would be purely cosmetic. And if Flynn and/or Pryor get beat put by Seneca than it proves without a doubt we need a QB in draft for sure.
