This trade makes sense for everyone involved. The Raiders need help at quarterback and Matt Schaub has worn out his welcome in Houston. After starting last season 2-0, the Texans proceeded to lose 14 straight games and Schaub looked terrible that entire time. There was no way fans would accept him as their starting quarterback next season again. Crazy thing is prior to last season his numbers were pretty good and so were the Texans. The Raiders only have to give up a late round draft pick and now they will hopefully get some help to run their offense. But based on last season there is no guarantee that Schaub will work out with Oakland either.
