The Oakland Raiders released former West Chester East star Matt Schaub on Monday, less than a year after acquiring him to be their starting quarterback.
Schaub was beaten out for the starting job by rookie Derek Carr last year. He was released just days after Oakland signed Christian Ponder as a backup.
Schaub threw just 10 passes with two interceptions last season. Oakland traded a sixth-round pick to Houston for Schaub last March and paid him $8 million for his season on the bench.
