As far as "good young prospects" are concerned Oakland already has Matt McGloin and Terrell Prior so they must not have thought any of the current crop represented the opportunity for success that Matt Schaub does to them. Perhaps Matt Schaub represented a mentor for those two young'uns. Given that they just signed MJD, maybe the coach thinks their locker room needs "veteran presence" or something.
Hell, its the Raiders. Who knows.
But if you can only get a 6th for a former starting QB, what do you think a "troubled", injury-prone, "weirdo", Hollywood-on-the-brain, (did I cover everything?) RB will bring you?
