The Raiders are in the market for a free agent veteran quarterback and have their sights set on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

Schaub, who is expected to be cut by the Texans, reportedly tops a Raiders list that includes Josh Freeman and Michael Vick. The Browns and Jets reportedly are also interested in Schaub.

Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson has experience working with Freeman during their previous term together with the Buccaneers.
