General manager Mike Mayock expressed a desire for McCarron to remain with the Raiders in 2019, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. "I think [coach] Jon [Gruden] and I both believe that the backup quarterback is one snap away from playing. It's important to have someone like McCarron ready to go," Mayock said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Oakland raised eyebrows around the league last offseason by shipping a fifth-round pick to Buffalo in exchange for McCarron. The 2014 fifth-round pick ultimately logged just 12 snaps and threw three passes for the Raiders in 2018. He'll be owed a $3 million roster bonus if he remains on the Raiders' roster March 15, with the majority of his contract then becoming guaranteed on the 17th.
