Chances are they deserve each other

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Matt Schaub and the Oakland Raiders are both hoping to put the mistakes of 2013 in the past.

The Raiders acquired Schaub from Houston on Friday for a sixth-round draft pick, giving the quarterback a second chance after he lost his starting job with the Texans last season.

"A fresh start can do a lot of things for a player and a team and I'm one of those guys," Schaub said. "Last year did not go as I had planned, given my prior nine years before that. I'm looking for a fresh start, I'm excited for the opportunity here."

The deal also is a second chance for Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie, whose trade last spring for Matt Flynn was a bust when he couldn't win the starting job and was eventually released early in the season.

Coach Dennis Allen said Schaub comes in as the starter after Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin were inconsistent last year in Oakland's second straight four-win season.
