SANTA CLARA — Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis doesn’t have a plan to trade for quarterback Aaron Donald.
But he does believe his team has an opportunity to improve its roster, if it wants to make a run at a Super Bowl.
Davis said he would be open to adding a veteran quarterback, but only if he’s ready to play right away.
He also said that he would prefer to have a young player at the position than a veteran like Aaron Donald, who is under contract for two more seasons.
Donald is the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL and has two Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots.
He’s also under contract through 2021, making him one of the top quarterbacks in the league.
Davis said he’d like to see the Raiders win another title this year, but he would not be interested in parting with a future Hall of Famer to help win a championship.
The Raiders are 4-8 after a 3-13 start, which includes a 34-23 loss at Denver last Sunday.
The Broncos, who have a record of 17-7, are 1-5 in their past six games.
Davis has been adamant about wanting to improve his roster this offseason.
The Raiders have signed two free agents to bolster their roster, including wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who was signed to a one-year deal in March.
Crabtree has scored 17 touchdowns this season and is second in the team in receiving yards.
The 6-foot-3, 208-pounder caught 12 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown last week against the Seattle Seahawks.
The other free agent to have signed with the Raiders is linebacker Khalil Mack, who had 10 tackles and one sack last week.
He has been released by the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers were also reported to be interested last week in acquiring the free agent.
