Raiders Will Sign QB Matt Leinart Today

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Oakland Raiders will sign free agent QB Matt Leinart today.

He was recently brought in for a workout and considering that Terrelle Pryor is currently their backup, it made plenty of sense for them sign a veteran option. Oakland’s new offensive coordinator Greg Knapp actually worked with Leinart the past few seasons in Houston, so there’s an obvious connection to the team.

The Raiders also brought in Jim Sorgi recently, but Leinart figures to be the best option to put behind Carson Palmer next season.
