Raiders taking look at veteran quarterbacks

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.

    Yo!

  • Goldie7

    Who’s Pat White?

  • tom kaufman

    Played in Preseason for the Skins. More of an option QB but not more than ave..not a strong arm from what i saw as well.

  • JLofty

    I read a wiki on Pat White. Heckava college career but hasn’t started a game in the pros. Got cut from an arena too.

    The Oakland Raiders
    The NFL has announced that the Raiders will play a regular season game in London next year. http://bit.ly/15YxOy8

  • Just Fire Baby

    I have a stronger arm than Pat White.

  • Goldie7

    Thanks! Good looking out, because I didn’t have a clue.

  • JOn Wooah

    If the Tp2 plays in that washington game.. they win .. The Raiders are fielding a competetive team on 54 million dollars in NO CAP money.. Think on that!

    They could be 3-2 with 54 million dollars in hole ded money. WOW

  • DKnight007

    Glad McK and DA were smart enough to start TP, otherwise there jobs would be on the line pretty damn fast. The whole nation would have on their azzes also for not starting TP. Need a true evaluation of TP this year to see whether not the team needs to draft a young QB in the draft. Quality QB’s in the draft potentially in 2014.

  • plunkhead

    Whats Jake Plummer doing?

  • plunkhead

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • JOn Wooah

    Pat white had a pretty strong Preseason this YEAR… but y no TEBOW?

  • DKnight007

    I guess it will have to be Carrrrrrrrrrrr…..

  • Just Fire Baby

    “Home” game in London? Another slap in the face to us by the NFL in regards to our stadium situation.
    Anyone want to bet it will be the first one, so to cover up a “dirt” game?
    Games at 11:30 EST, games in London.
    I am getting sick of this crap.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    who did David Carr ever help mentor? Alex Smith & Eli Manning? yeah right. that guy is done. give me Pat White

  • JLofty

    Idk about Carr with our oline. He’s got some serious happy feet not that I blame him…

  • plunkhead

    Who was it in here that though Pat would lead the niners to greatness

  • DKnight007

    White has no arm and Edwards head is rattled worse than Carrs’. Lol

  • Just Fire Baby

    All about the QB.
    TP makes everyone better, Flynn made everyone worse.
    I think we could have had Flynn with the AFC Pro Bowl team and struggled to win 8 games.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    good point, JW. Tim Tebow is a way better option than all 3 of these clowns

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Think that was Troy Smith people were in love with

  • JLofty

    Sadly have to agree here…

  • Just Fire Baby

    None of these guys will be brought in to do anything but be ready to play IN-GAME if TP is hurt in the middle of one.
    Otherwise, with a week to prepare, they will play McGloin.
    Exactly like Leinart last year in the Carolina/SD situation.

  • DKnight007

    Agreed. Tebow is a better option than all those clowns actually.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Yup.
    Generally I’m a believer in having continuity between starter/backup styles so I’m inclined to favor Pat White but since I believe the case is as you say, I think Carr might do the best job stepping into the middle of a game “cold” so to speak.

  • plunkhead

    That’s right

  • Thec

    Gotti, outta of the 3 choices, who do you take?

    To me, its roc, pape,r siz

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Don’t think Reggie wants the circus that Tebow brings with him.

  • DKnight007

    At least Tebow can be utilized in short yardage and goal line situations potentially to move the chains or in the backfield with TP as an HB or something. Put Tebow on special teams also!

  • Just Fire Baby

    “Troy Smith and Jason Campbell are playing the best QB’ing the Bay Area has seen since Montana and Plunkett”
    -Mistic

  • JLofty

    At this juncture I’d be more inclined to go with Vince Young or dare I say it, Teblow. Can’t believe its come to this…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Edwards I guess, but certainly not enthusiatically. We just need to cutout these R/O crap to keep TP healthy.

  • DKnight007

    Agreed. I was still pissed at DA for not playing TP vs Wash. It cost a win. Ugh. They should have at least suited TP up. Oh well. I guess his safety was a concern. Maybe DA should have put McG in after Flynn’s 2nd TO.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Oh, no.

    #Raiders are going to play one of their “home” games in London next season.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Took a couple hits end of game, one from Teo kind of in the back, that made me cringe.
    Your only 24 for so long and can get bent all kinds of weird ways and hop right up.

  • Thec

    Agreed 100…

    On RO calls, if i am TP2, i hear static noise in the headset, then audible to something else.

    RO is dumb imo….

  • SilverNBlackPA

    My god, that one’s an all-timer isn’t it?

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    PA, Tebow doesn’t bring a “circus”. the media hates him. he’s probably the biggest punchline at PFT. who cares? Reggie & Dennis are putting together a God fearing football team. if you don’t like it – apply for fanhood elsewhere

  • Morilla_00

    Good lord, pun intended. We are trying to get away from being the joke of the NFL. Who wants that freaking circus.

    No to Teblow. No way.

    They want a vet to back up TP. Not a cartoon.

  • Thec

    lolololololololololol…#cartoon

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Was he the one Boller beat out? Thought Edwards was better.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    Vince Young is a suicidal POS. not exactly the type of player Reggie & Dennis are looking for!

  • R8erEduc8er

    We have a game in London? This year? When?

  • Thec

    The London Raiders…we loose a home game.

  • plunkhead

    I believe the poor dude has some mental issues that are not his fault, like my ex. I blamed my mother in law. Carson Palmer was p[laying well at the time.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    “Media hates him” — Is that why ESPN and the NFL Network breathlessly cover everything he does?

  • R8erEduc8er

    Nevermind…just saw link below.

  • brad

    You guy’s are nut’s with the Tebow talk that would only be a distraction for this team Far worse than the Flynn-Stonites Worshipers. The best guy would be a guy who has escape-ability! Look for Pat White to sign or Carr! Trent Edwards is a Concussion waiting to happen unless he provides Study skills that will help TP while holding a Clip Board! Edwards has been here before and released! Too bad we didn’t get a chance to sign Seneca Wallace! Go Raiders!
