The Raiders apparently think the 33-year-old Schaub has some gas left in the tank. They made a mind-boggling decision to use him as an $8 million band-aid starter for this season. Schaub clearly needed a change of scenery following his nightmarish 2013 campaign with the Houston Texans, which included an embarrassing-but-deserved benching at the midway point of the season. For the Raiders, Schaub is an upgrade, but only a temporary one, as Derek Carr is waiting in the wings and should be ready to takeover sometime this year, if not during training camp. Granted, Schaub likely will have some new-kid-on-the-block moments while he learns a new offense and familiarizes himself with a new collection of receivers. Some weeks the immobile pocket passer likely will be under siege behind a leaky offensive line that allowed 44 sacks last year. On paper Schaub looks like an unremarkable fantasy QB2 for as long as he holds onto the starting job.
