With the release of Matt Flynn on Monday, the Oakland Raiders have just two quarterbacks on their roster with a paucity of experience between them.
Terrelle Pryor has looked impressive in his first four starts this season after winning the starting job this preseason. However, despite being with the team for three years Pryor has been active for just eight games.
Pryor’s current backup following the release of Flynn is rookie undrafted quarterback Matt McGloin. He has yet to appear in a game this season.
According to David White of the Fresno Bee, the Raiders are looking for a veteran willing to be a backup to Pryor. Oakland worked out veteran David Carr on Tuesday and he appears to be a favorite to land the job if the Raiders elect to add another quarterback. However, despite a “solid workout” from Carr, the Raiders aren’t biting just yet. If they do elect to sign Carr, or another veteran, it likely won’t happen until during the team’s bye next week.
Carr spent training camp with the New York Giants and had a workout with the Tennessee Titans last week after the injury to Jake Locker.
