Jack Coan to join the Silver and Black? It’s a possibility.
The Sayville legend and former Notre Dame quarterback reportedly worked out for the Raiders today, according to NFL reporter Ari Meirov.
After going undrafted, Coan signed a deal with the Colts this offseason. He went on to play in three preseason games with the team before being cut ahead of the regular season.
In limited time played, Coan completed 10 of 19 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown.
His best showing came against Detroit, where he tossed “the perfect pass” to fellow rookie Samson Nacua out of Brigham Young to bring the Colts within one point in the final minute of the game.
The Raiders are led by head coach Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach who worked with Tom Brady on the Patriots for 10 years.
McDaniels’ team is having a rough start to the season, sitting last in the AFC West with a 1-3 record. While it is unlikely the team will look to supplant starting QB Derek Carr, who signed a three-year, $121.5 million contract extension in April, there isn’t much depth after him.
The only other quarterback on the roster is Jarrett Stidham, who spent three seasons as a backup with the Patriots before being traded to the Raiders in May. He has 48 career pass attempts.
The Raiders also have Chase Garbers, an undrafted rookie quarterback out of California, on its practice team.
