The Oakland Raiders will get a bit of salary relief going forward after newly acquired quarterback Matt Schaub agreed to a restructured deal for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Schaub was owned $24.5 million over the next two seasons but that number will drop to $15-$20 million as the Raiders get some additional relief against the cap. It is likely that Schaub knew about the restructure prior to his recent trade to the Raiders.

Regardless the Raiders are one of the few places in the NFL were Schaub would walk in and have a job even with his poor 2013 numbers.
Schaub appeared in 10 games completing 61.2-percent of his passes for 2310 yards, 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
The addition of Schaub, and subsequent restructure, likely takes the Raiders out of contention for a quarterback early in the draft.
