The Raiders worked out veteran quarterbacks David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White on Tuesday in an attempt to find an experienced backup to Terrelle Pryor.
The workouts come one day after the Raiders released six-year veteran Matt Flynn. Coach Dennis Allen said he didn’t have a firm plan on how he intended to proceed in terms of replacing Flynn on the 53-man roster.
Pryor, who has started only five games in his three NFL seasons, and undrafted rookie Matt McGloin are the only quarterbacks on the active roster. Rookie Tyler Wilson, a fourth-round draft pick in April, is on the team’s practice squad.
Carr and Edwards have extensive starting experience in the NFL, whereas White has bounced around since he entered the league.
Carr, 34, started 79 games since he joined the league in 2002, but none of those starts came after the 2007 season, when Carr turned into a backup.
Edwards, who turns 30 later this month, started 33 games from 2007-12. However, he has appeared in only six games since 2009.
The Raiders have an open spot on their active roster after they waived Flynn and offensive lineman Jack Cornell on Monday and activated wide receiver Andre Holmes from the suspended list.
White, 27, attempted five passes for the Miami Dolphins in 2009 in his only action at quarterback. He was with the Washington Redskins earlier this season.
