Updating a previous report, Las Vegas Raiders QB Marcus Mariota (pectoral) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of a pectoral strain.
Las Vegas Raiders QB Marcus Mariota (pectoral) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 7.
Las Vegas Raiders QB Marcus Mariota (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 28, but probably will only miss a few more days, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Las Vegas Raiders QB Marcus Mariota (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Three Las Vegas Raiders beat writers noted that quarterback Marcus Mariota had a poor week of practice in training camp. Head coach Jon Gruden's offense is a complicated system to pick up quickly, so perhaps that's part of the reason. It's good news for incumbent Derek Carr, but he'll still be on a short leash in 2020 if he gets off to a slow start. The 26-year-old Mariota was benched in favor of Ryan Tannehill in his final season in Tennessee and never really presented fantasy owners with a ton of upside. The Raiders coaching staff has a soft spot for Mariota, but it's looking more and more like Carr will get the nod in Week 1, as expected.
Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said that quarterback Marcus Mariota "really fired me up today" at training camp on Friday. He has turned a corner with his ankle (injury) and he is a dazzling playmaker. He had a very nice day. It might just be coach speak, and we all know that Gruden typically loves almost every player he's laid eyes on in the NFL, but it's worth noting nonetheless. Incumbent Derek Carr could easily be on the hot seat early in 2020 if he doesn't impress the coaching staff with his production, and Mariota, despite his failures in Tennessee, remains athletic and is one of the highest-paid backup QBs in the league. If Mariota winds up making starts this year, he'd be a low-ceiling, low-end QB2.
Las Vegas Raiders QBs Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota have general manager Mike Mayock feeling 'really good about the quarterback position,' according to ESPN's Dan Graziano.
Las Vegas Raiders general manager Mike Mayock said that, "We feel really good about the quarterback position" heading into next week's draft. Quarterback Derek Carr quietly had one of his better seasons in 2019, but the Raiders brought in Marcus Mariota in free agency as a fallback option in case Carr can't improve the offense even more going forward. Mayock also said, "We need to get better at wideout." Las Vegas will have a shot at one of the top QB prospects with two picks (No. 12, No. 19) in the first round, but it sounds like they could ignore signal-caller and go after one of the top receivers in an excellent draft class for the position. Tyrell Williams, Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow are the team's top three wideouts as of right now.
Free-agent QB Marcus Mariota (Titans) officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.
