QB Matt Leinart set his sights on the Oakland Raiders


Matt Leinart will sign with the Oakland Raiders when visiting the team next week, reports NFL.com. While visiting Oakland, Leinart will practice for the coaches and team executives.

In this scenario, Leinart will backup Carson Palmer and Terrelle Pryor will become the third string QB. There is some history to go along with this story.  At the University of Southern California, Carson Palmer was preplaced by Matt Leinart and Leinart worked with Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp while Leinart was a QB at the Houston Texans last year.

Leinart suffered a fractured collarbone last year less than two quarters into his first start of the season. He was starting in place of the injured Matt Schaub.
