Schaub was benched in his final year with the Texans before being traded to Oakland this offseason.
"I don't have any problems with Matt Schaub's confidence," coach Dennis Allen said. "I think he's in a good frame of mind. I think he's very hungry. I think he's excited about the new opportunity."
Schaub should benefit from a change of scenery, Allen said.
"I think anytime you go into something new, there's a little bit of, maybe it's an increased focus, an increased intensity level, because it is new," Allen said. "You kind of force yourself out of your comfort zone a little bit. I think he's done that. I think he's been very focused and very driven this offseason and I don't think there's any question that he's got something that he wants to go out and prove."
The 31-year-old made 105 tackles last year while playing in all 16 games.
The report says about Allen that "Schaub is his guy." Schaub has reportedly looked "impressive" in the offseason non-padded practices open to the media.
The Raiders do have the option of turning to rookie Derek Carr. But, per the report, "Allen appears ready to ride or die with Schaub, for better or worse."
