LAS VEGAS– The signing of Las Vegas Raiders back up quarterback Marcus Mariota shows that Mariota wants to stay with the Raiders organization. Mariota signs for a little more $3.5 million than what the Raiders wanted to pay. Mariota and starting quarterback Derek Carr are always working out quarterback situations together and head coach Jon Gruden was one who pushed to make this deal happen.
Mariota is a mobile quarterback and has that going for him a little more than Carr but their very close in what kinds of quarterbacks that they are and their going to be a great one and two quarterbacks going into this season. When Carr got the groin injury last season and Mariota stepped in against the Los Angeles Chargers Mariota although he played only one game for the Raiders threw for 226 yards, went 17-28 and has all the flare of stepping in and taking over for Carr if it’s necessary.
