Raiders head coach Hue Jackson said recently that “there’s no question” Jason Campbell is the team’s starting quarterback. It was a signal to QB Bruce Gradkowski, who started four games for Oakland last season, that if he wants a chance to earn a starting job, he’ll have to look elsewhere when his contract expires this offseason. Gradkowski apparently has not ruled out staying put, however.
Gradkowski told Pro Football Weekly earlier this week that he knows he’s an NFL starter, but he still would like to stay in Oakland. “I’d love to stay out here,” Gradkowski said. “I think the Raiders want me back, as well. Hopefully it makes sense for everyone and it works out. Whatever my part is, I just want to be a Raider and help this team win and go from there.”
