NFL Trade Rumors:
Raiders HC Dennis Allen reiterated on Wednesday that the starting quarterback job is Matt Flynn’s to lose.
“Matt’s our starting quarterback as we go forward right now,” Allen said, via the Contra Costa Times, “and until the competition dictates otherwise, that’s where we’re going.”
There’s been a good deal of buzz surrounding the play of fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson since rookie camp opened a few weeks ago. Clearly, it’s still very early in the offseason and there’s plenty of time for Flynn to separate himself from Wilson and Terrelle Pryor, but this is at least something to monitor in the coming months.
Raiders first-round pick CB D.J. Hayden recently underwent abdominal surgery to have scar tissue removed.
Initial reports suggested that Hayden’s surgery was not related to his previous heart surgery, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that a team source has informed him that the injury is in fact related to his heart surgery.
