Derek Carr has been named the #2 in Oakland

Are Matt McGloin’s days in Oakland numbered?

Rookie quarterback Derek Carr has already supplanted second-year man McGloin on the Oakland Raiders depth chart and will be the No.2 quarterback entering training camp according to Scott Bair of

“We’re trying to expedite his progression,” head coach Dennis Allen said, “I like a lot of the things that I’ve seen out of Derek. He’s still got a long way to go, but I like the direction that he’s headed.” Allen emphasized that Carr’s rate of development depends on how much the rookie can process in August. If he continues to show he’s intelligent enough to handle first-team reps, the coaches will throw more responsibility his way.

I wonder if the Raiders would trade McGloin? Shoot of T.J. Yates has trade value, I am sure McGloin does as well.
