Raiders news: Quarterback Nick Mullens has signed

The highlight of Nick Mullen’s career came against the Raiders. Now Mullens is a Raider.

NFL Media reported Friday morning that the reserve quarterback has agreed to terms with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Athletic have reported that the terms of his contract are a modest $1 million guaranteed deal and could be as high as $2.5 million for one season.

The Raiders have now added two veteran quarterbacks behind starter Derek Carr. They previously signed Garret Gilbert, who was with new Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels on New England’s practice squad in two different seasons.

Mullens was the Cleveland Browns‘ third-string quarterback last year, but it looks like he’ll likely be the Raiders’ best replacement based on his experience compared to Gilbert’s. Gilbert started just two games and Mullens started 17 games.

In 2018, Mullens, then unknown, led the San Francisco 49ers to a 34-3 win over the Raiders in a Thursday night game. Mullens also played against the Raiders in 2021 because the Browns’ top two quarterbacks were on the COVID-19 list.

With three quarterbacks now on the roster, the Raiders are unlikely to pick up a quarterback, especially with such a small draft class.
