07:25 AM ET 01.22 | Here we go again. The Raiders need a quarterback of the present and future. General manager Reggie McKenzie said the team wants to import a veteran passer, and would prefer a drafted quarterback gets a season at least to watch and learn. ... This week at the Senior Bowl, the Raiders are getting a close eye at some passers who may be available in the second or third round. They've met with Clemson's Tajh Boyd and are scheduled to meet with Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr among others. While quarterbacks are not the Raiders' only focus of this Senior Bowl week, they will be a point of emphasis throughout the pre-draft process that includes pro days, college all-star games and the NFL scouting combine. Exhibitions like the Senior Bowl hold a special weight.

Reg your main priority in Mobile ought to be shoring up your defense since your team was rank in the bottom half of the league stats.

Yes. He is playing in a fifth grade basketball tournament in California.

I honestly think Oakland has bigger issues then the QB situation. They can afford to stick with what they got and fix all the other major holes on their roster at least for this season.

The raiders have r/aped and pilaged their roster for assets to trade for draft picks or QBs and none of them have panned out since Rich.
It's time to build the rest of the roster and be patient for a QB.

Another draft, another bust for da Raaaiders!

Oh gosh, Carr is not the guy. Did anyone see he get tossed around against USC in the Vegas Bowl, it was sad. He's just not an NFL quarterback. If he were a baseball player they'd call him a class aaaa player, basically a career minor leaguer who plays at the top of the minor leagues but just not good enough for the majors. That Carr, NFL defenses will destroy this guy just like they did with his brother. Caution, stay away

"the team wants to import a veteran passer"
Matt "Pick 6" Schaub is available

Christian Ponder and his wounded ducks will be, too. And he'll bring Samantha with him.

Yes he probably will be in the game.
