The National Football Post is reporting the Raiders worked out Northwestern quarterback Mike Kafka.

Speculation about the quarterback position has been heavy with the Raiders given the struggles last season of JaMarcus Russell, whom the owe $3 million in guaranteed money and $9.45 million should he play this season.

Oakland has been linked with Donovan McNabb (since traded to Washington from Philadelphia), Jimmy Clausen (Mel Kiper Jr. has the Raiders taking Clausen at No. 8) and Tim Tebow (NFL.com draft analyst Gil Brandt talked of an Oakland-Tebow visit).

Kafka is considered a mid- to late-round prospect.

    Sounds like you are prepared to pay me for losing.

    I’ve still got Russell’s back.

    Fix the O line, improve the run game. Improve the run game, improve the play action. Improve the play action, give Russell that extra 1/4 second he always seem to take.

    IF he’s working, we’ll know at OTA’s

  • Nnamdi21

    DHB?

    I’m still worried about that one.

    Some of his drops made Alvis Whitted look viable.

    Typical old man….more worried about playing childish games with the media ahead of building a legitimate and respectable WINNER on the field!

    Lame….

    JR problems is not the OL or the overall talent around him, the real problem is his passion for the game, his lack of leadership, his horrible work ethic and his sense that he got what he wanted attitude. He has never stepped forward and taken the blame for any of his misreads, he has not shown any maturity as far as a player who is been in the league for the past 3 yrs, he still seems not to understand what it takes to become a qb in this league. You can fix all the things u want with this offense but until we change the QB situation we are doomed in my opinion. Bruce might be garbage, less talented, but his players believe in him. JR needs to show dedication beyond any to win over his team, fans and get respected by his opponent.

  • Raiders4eve

    JR is still a rookie player in my opinion. He needs to show that he is a veteran QB, by this year he should know the playbook, the way to talk to the media, the leadership to lead this team, be around in Oakland in the offseason work hard, carry this franchise by giving all you got, that is how QBs earn respect.

    It doesn’t appear the Raiders had a scouting contingent at Jimmy Clausen’s Pro Day on Friday. ESPN’s Mel Kiper believes he will be the team’s pick at No. 8. The lack of an Oakland presence doesn’t necessarily mean much, but if the Raiders were seriously considering him, they’d probably take a close look at Clausen at some point.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    The Raiders did have a “scout” there…..it was former Raiders QB/O-Coordinator MARC TRESTMAN!

    I’m sure if old man Al wants to hear first hand about Clausen he will hit up the man who has been preparing Clausen and who scripted his workout today in Trestman!

    Lombardi also compared Clausen to Sanchez and both Bucky Brooks and Lombardi said they thought Clausens workout was better than Sanchez’s was last year.

    The scripted workout also had Clausen throwing more intermediate to deep balls and his arm is much more lively than Sanchez arm.

    Just a waste of time and money IMO with Juggs and that is the type of stuff by keeping a guy who mixes cough syrup and alcohol and drinks it like water and is lazy that had caused this franchise to SUCK the last years….

    Learn you some integrity?

    Oh Krappy, you just get better and better with age – lots of age! First of all, your backward Oklahomian talk is priceless. Good thing proper schooling wasn’t required in hill country.

    And a dirty old PLAGIARIST like yourself even mentioning the word integrity is just priceless! It’s like Hitler offering to mentor a Jew on equal rights.

    Krappy, if you weren’t such a sad old slob, I’d really feel sorry for you.

    But since you are, me and my ladies are just going to enjoy another quality hearty laugh at your expense!

    Awesome!

  • DKnight007

    If Clausen is there at #8….the old man either takes him or TRADES DOWN!

    This franchise needs some kind of hope….keeping Juggs Russell does NOT give the fans any confidence there will be any hope!

    Clausen is a better QB of the future alternative than Juggs Russell is…without a doubt!

    Sanchez threw 12 tds and 20 interceptions.

    On second thoughts, there’s something about Clausen I don’t like. He has a face like Sting’s or the Doogie Howser guy. A face you’d wanna punch, that rubs you the wrong way.

    I’d rather Tebow.

  • LhayeS37

    tebow?we don’t need a jesus freak who takes a week to get the ball out of his hand.draft okung who will provide an athletic tackle.plus the raiders aren’t smart enough to run the wildcat.at least clausen can read coverages

  • BornInOakland

    If the Raiders draft this QB and he blows a big game with a late INT or fumble, I can already see the headlines:
