Report: Raiders Discuss Trading For Leinart

The Matt Leinart era is about to end in Arizona. He is being shopped around the league. According to Adam Schefter, the three teams who have discussed trading for Leinart are the Bills, Raiders and Giants.

There are a few ways to look at this news.

Scenario A: The Raiders are not interested, but because other teams know they can always mention the Raiders they get thrown into the mix on just about every possible trade. The Raiders will never confirm or deny these reports.

Scenario B: The Raiders are not content with Bruce Gradkowski and Kyle Boller as the two backup quarterbacks. Despite strong preseason performances and positive reviews from the coaching staff, the Raiders simply want another option.

It certainly makes much more sense for the Bills and Giants, both in need of a quality backup. Scenario B doesn’t seem likely at this point.

It seems this is just another case of the Raiders being used to create interest from other teams.

The 53-man roster cut looms and I’ll have my prediction up sometime before the deadline. The only surprise cut of the first five was veteran tight-end Tony Stewart. The Raiders either like John Owens or will go with just Zach Miller and Brandon Myers this season.
