Matt Schaub QB BAL 3 months ago

Schaub signed with the Ravens on Tuesday, SI.com's Peter King reports.

Schaub will compete with 2014 sixth-round selection Keith Wenning for the right to back-up Joe Flacco, who has yet to miss a game through seven NFL seasons. Schaub may be the bigger name here, but given how poorly the veteran played in 2013 and into the 2014 preseason, Wenning should have a decent chance to win the job.

Schaub was released by the Raiders on Monday, CSN Bay Area reports.

Schaub's release comes as little surprise after the Raiders signed backup quarterback Christian Ponder last week. Additionally, by releasing Schaub, Oakland will save $5.5 million in salary cap space to invest elsewhere, since Derek Carr is clearly their top signal-caller moving forward. Expect Schaub to sign elsewhere with a team looking to add a veteran presence to their quarterback ranks.

Schaub came on for an ineffective Derek Carr and completed 5-of-9 passes for 57 yards, but he threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown in the Raiders' 52-0 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

With the Raiders getting absolutely destroyed, Schaub was able to get a few throws in for the first time this season, though he did little to even spark the tiniest quarterback controversy. With Carr still healthy, there is little reason to believe the 1-11 Raiders will throw Schaub under center for the final four games of the season.

Schaub (personal) practiced on Monday, ESPN.com reports.

It was Schaub's first practice back after being away from the team due to a family issue. With Derek Carr on track to play Sunday against the Chargers, either Schaub or Matt McGloin would be in line to serve as the Raiders' backup QB in Week 6.

Schaub (personal) has rejoined the team and was at the facility Wednesday, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Schaub left the team prior to its Sept. 21 matchup against New England to attend to a personal matter, but he's now back and will presumably practice in full leading up to Week 6. The Raiders are on bye this week. Starter Derek Carr suffered a high-ankle sprain and a sprained MCL in this past Sunday's loss to Miami, which could open the door for Schaub to see some first-team reps, though Carr said he is confident he'll be healthy enough to play Oct. 12 against San Diego.

Schaub (elbow) returned to practice Monday, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

Less than an hour after word leaked of Schaub losing the starting quarterback job to Derek Carr, the veteran fit in his first activity since last Wednesday. Schaub even lined up and completed a short pass, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune, which doesn't exactly infer that his health has improved much. Nonetheless, Schaub has little chance to regain relevance in the first few weeks, barring a sudden downturn in Carr's play.
