Matt Schaub signed with the Oakland Raiders with hopes of being the quarterback to the lead the team… but after just one season, he’s been cut.
The vet was originally picked up by the Raiders to start. However, after struggling in the preseason, rookie Derek Carr got the nod and started every game during the regular season — the only rookie quarterback to start every game in 2014.
This week, the Raiders decided to cut Schaub to free up $5.5 million in salary-cap room.
Schaub was acquired by the Raiders last year from Houston for a sixth-round pick. During his time in Oakland, he threw 10 passes, two of which were intercepted.
His release follows the Raiders’ recently signing of Christian Ponder.
