These five players are on the hot seat

#5 Marcus Mariota

#5 Marcus Mariota

You might see Marcus Mariota taking a pay cut to stay with the Raiders as the end of his football career, but it actually could put him in a very interesting situation down the line. For example, if the Raiders give up on Derek Car as their starter, it will give Marcus Mariota a chance to take control of the offense. He could end up taking Carr's job before all is said and done. Honestly, Mariota taking an eight-million-dollar pay cut might not have been the worst idea. He's protecting his career and giving himself time to prove himself to potential suitors. With that in mind, don't expect Mariota to stick around if the starting job doesn't become his.
