The Las Vegas Raiders have a solid backup quarterback in Marcus Mariota, who had his eyes on the quarterback landscape in the NFL.
Last season, the Las Vegas Raiders turned to Marcus Mariota when Derek Carr went down with an injury against the Los Angeles Chargers, and he certainly did not disappoint. In fact, Mariota looked like a player who could help plenty of NFL teams as a starter, a role he is looking to get back to playing.
Having Mariota behind Carr is a luxury for the Silver and Black, that is for sure, and when he restructured his contract this spring, he made sure there was a no-trade clause in there. However, that does not mean that trading him away is off the table, it just means that he is going to have to approve the team he is dealt to.
This brings us to where we are now, a few days into training camp, and the Raiders looking to finally get over the hump and make the playoffs. While happy in Las Vegas, Mariota has said that he is keeping his eyes on the quarterback landscape in the NFL in hopes of landing a starting job.
With that said, here are three teams that should get on the phone to try and swing a deal for him.
