News: Schaub was released by the Raiders on Monday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Schaub's release comes as little surprise after the Raiders signed backup quarterback Christian Ponder last week. Additionally, by releasing Schaub, Oakland will save $5.5 million in salary cap space to invest elsewhere, since Derek Carr is clearly their top signal-caller moving forward. Expect Schaub to sign elsewhere with a team looking to add a veteran presence to their quarterback ranks.

News: The Oakland Raiders have released Matt Schaub less than one year after acquiring him to be their starting quarterback.
Impact: Schaub was beaten out for the starting job by rookie Derek Carr last year and was released Monday just days after Oakland signed Christian Ponder as a backup. Schaub threw just 10 passes in his one season with the Raiders with two interceptions. His biggest contribution came when he took over the holding duties from punter Marquette King.
