Davante Adams: Raiders QB1 job is Aidan O’Connell’s to lose

There is a full on QB competition happening in Las Vegas. The battle is between second year man Aidan O’Connell and journeyman veteran Gardner Minshew. And from the vantage point of the team’s number one receiver, the job belongs to O’Connell’s to lose.

The All Pro receiver appeared on FS1 this week where he said his starting QB last year has the inside track on the job, at least for now.

Adams noted that he “doesn’t have a preference” as to who ultimately gets to nod to get him the ball, just that he wants that person to be “confident and ready to go.”

But he added that as he sits right now, that O’Connell has the job because “he was here before.” and that will remain “until Gardner comes in and takes the job away from him, I think it’s Aidan’s job right now.”

O’Connell has been running with the first team throughout the offseason with Minshew running with the second team. But come training camp, Minshew should be more acclimated to the offense and his new teammates which will be the true test as to whether O’Connell can continue to hold him off.
