Matt Leinart to the Raiders?!?
Rumors and speculation have run through the NFL that Matt Leinart would be working out for the Oakland Raiders, but up until now it was only a rumor. The Oakland Raiders have officially signed the former USC quarterback as a backup to starting quarterback, Carson Palmer. Leinart was a 2006 pick for the Arizona Cardinals and has yet to live up to the hype he received after leaving USC. After he was cut from the Cardinals he was signed to a one-year deal by the Houston Texans where he was the back up to starter Matt Schuab. Details of Leinart’s contract have yet to be released.
