There are more rumblings the Oakland Raiders could go quarterback shopping once the labor agreement is reached. Then again, they may not even wait that long.
The team is thought to be interested in Terrelle Pryor. The Supplemental Draft is later this month and the former Ohio State quarterback has drawn looks from around the league. Unlike many teams around the league, the Raiders would likely keep Pryor at quarterback, which would be appealing to the youngster and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
But taking Pryor is far from certain. The Raiders would have to use an early round pick to get him or hope he’s still available in the later rounds. The majority of their mid-round picks have already been traded away.
So if not Pryor, then who?
PFT’s Gregg Rosenthal wondered if Vince Young could be the solution.
Rosenthal speculated Al Davis’ affinity for rehabbing quarterbacks could land Young on the Silver and Black radar.
The team already has Campbell and Hue Jackson has said and done all the right things to assure the former Redskin he is the starter. Campbell is a consistent player who will get the job done — just not necessarily in the flashiest way.
For what it’s worth the players I’ve spoken with all believe Campbell is capable of leading the team into the playoffs.
