Oakland Raiders rumors about Mark Sanchez might make sense for the team. As the 2014 NFL Draft approaches, Oakland Raiders rumors indicate that Sanchez will become one of the targets for acquisition this offseason. According to a report from CBS Sports on Saturday (March 15), the veteran of the New York Jets hasn't even been released yet, so this is a projection that might not come into focus for a while.
Other quarterbacks that the team is going to look at include Matt Schaub, Josh Freeman, and Michael Vick. Vick could be the easiest of the group to acquire quickly, especially since he doesn't have a home after the Philadelphia Eagles put full support behind Nick Foles. The plan here would be to bring in someone that can take over as the starter until a new young quarterback is ready to step in for the long-term. That new solution will likely come with the fifth overall selection in the upcoming draft.
Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, or Johnny Manziel could become the team's selection in the first round, with each of the prospects popping up in Oakland Raiders rumors at some point this offseason. Offering something like a sixth round selection to the New York Jets for Mark Sanchez could also get that deal done, with head coach Rex Ryan likely turning to Geno Smith as the permanent solution there. If the Houston Texans end up making Matt Schaub available first, though, a deal could be struck there as well.
