LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Raiders have agreed to a two-year deal with former Colts quarterback Gardner Minshew, according to NFL sources.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, he’ll have to compete with quarterback Aidan O’Connell.

Drafted as a sixth-round pick in 2019, Minshew began his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he would stay for three seasons. During his time there, Minshew would take over as starting quarterback in 2020, after Nick Foles was traded to the Chicago Bears.

In 2021, he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2022 draft. He would make his start on the team in Week 13 after Jalen Hurts was sidelined with an ankle injury.

Minshew would find his way to the Indianapolis Colts in 2023, where he would sign a one-year deal for $3.5 million. Minshew made his first start with the team in September, after starting quarterback Anthony Richardson was sidelined due to concussion protocol.

He would take over as the starting quarterback after Richardson suffered an AC joint sprain in Week 5, which placed him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. He would lead the Colts to a 9-8 record in the regular season, falling short of the playoffs after a 23-19 loss to the Texans.
