I don't believe Ponder sees himself as a backup, even though that's what it looks like he is.....I keep seeing him landing in a place where he has a chance to start.
He's definitely a guy I will follow wherever he winds up...just out of morbid curiousity.
At this point I think he was just looking to stay in the league. This was his first known interest (with Musgrave, no less). I don't know how much lower on the totem pole you can be than to sign a one-year contract with the Raiders (to compete with Matt McGloin to be the backup).

I forgot Musgrave had gone to Oakland.
Ponder did himself no favors last season when he got a chance with TB's ankle injury.

Ponder to the Raiders...Back with Musgrave again. I thought he got signed fairly quick.

Just like TJoke, the only team that has any interest is the OC he came into the league with. Offense he knows. Probably get close to these guys working with them for years. Sure wasn't signed for anything else he brings.

Ben Roethlisberger's deal is astonishing. 5 years, $99M, $31M signing bonus, $65M in the first three years, $61M guaranteed.

Not bad for a guy who is 33 years old.

@AlbertBreer Part of me thinks Chip did this just to mess with everyone. And I'd be OK with that.
