Former first-round pick QB Matt Leinart will sign with the Raiders, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.
Leinart, a 2006 pick by the Cardinals, was Houston’s No. 2 quarterback last season. He started one game, completing 10-of-13 passes for 57 yards and a touchdown before suffering a season-ending fractured collarbone.
Leinart started 11-of-12 games in which he played in ’06, throwing 11 touchdowns and 21 picks. He joins fellow USC grad Carson Palmer in Oakland and will compete to be the Raiders’ No. 2 quarterback.
