The Raiders have lost quarterback Derek Carr for the season. They apparently will be standing pat with the player they have.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Raiders have made no contact with veteran free agent Mike Vick. Arguably the biggest name in a limited group of available quarterbacks, Vick (who appeared in five games with three starts for the Steelers in 2015) had wanted to play this year. He drew no interest.
The move likely means that the Raiders will stick with Matt McGloin and Connor Cook for the duration of the season. On one hand, they know the offense. On the other hand, they are Matt McGloin and Connor Cook. With all due respect.
Vick doesn’t know the Oakland offense at all, which would be an obvious impediment. That said, Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave was the quarterbacks coach in Atlanta for Vick’s final season there in 2006.
