Raiders Acquire Matt Schaub

Posted Mar 21, 2014

The Oakland Raiders have acquired QB Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans in exchange for a draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Oakland Raiders have acquired QB Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans in exchange for a draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, General Manager Reggie McKenzie announced Friday.

Entering his 11th season, Schaub joins the Raiders after seven seasons with the Texans and three with the Atlanta Falcons. For his career, he has appeared in 128 games with 90 starts, throwing for 24,254 yards on 2,035-of-3,181 passing (64.0 percent) with 130 touchdowns, 84 interceptions and a quarterback rating of 89.8. One of the league’s most accurate passers, Schaub’s 64.0 percent career completion percentage ranks ninth in NFL history. He is the Texans’ franchise leader in every major passing category.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder is a two-time Pro Bowler, having earned the honors in 2009 and 2012. In 2009, Schaub set career highs in completions (396), attempts (583), yards (4,770), completion percentage (67.9 percent), touchdowns (29) and quarterback rating (98.6). His 4,770 yards led the NFL that season, making him the first Texans quarterback to accomplish the feat. He was also named the Pro Bowl MVP that year.

In 2011 and 2012, Schaub helped Houston to back-to-back AFC South titles, the franchise’s first and second division crowns. In 2012, he led the Texans to a franchise-best 12-4 record and an AFC Wild Card victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The West Chester, Pa. native was originally drafted by the Falcons in the third round (90th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft out of the University of Virginia. Schaub holds school career records for completions (716), attempts (1,069), passing yards (7,502) and touchdowns (56).  He was also named the 2002 ACC Player of the Year.
