09/04/15 - QB Christian Ponder is expected to be cut, a league source told ESPN's Adam Caplan on Friday. That news means Matt McGloin is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback behind Derek Carr. The Raiders will absorb $1.5 million in dead money from Ponder's signing bonus.
03/14/15 - QB Christian Ponder left the Vikings for the Raiders Friday (March 13), agreeing to terms on a one-year contract.
The move reunites Ponder with Bill Musgrave, who coached him in Minnesota and is now the Raiders' offensive coordinator under new coach Jack Del Rio.
Ponder was drafted 12th overall by the Vikings in 2011 and started 36 games in his four seasons in Minnesota. He completed 59.8 percent of his passes for 6,658 yards, 38 touchdowns and 36 interceptions.
The Vikings essentially gave up on him in 2013, when they signed Josh Freeman at midseason. But Freeman was gone after 2013 and the Vikings used their second first-rounder in four years on a quarterback when they selected Teddy Bridgewater. Ponder ended up falling to third on the depth chart behind Bridgewater and Matt Cassel.
