The Oakland Raiders are in desperate need of a backup QB, and there is not a better fit for that spot than Matt Leinart.
Both parties seem to be fully aware of this as ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that league sources tell him the Heisman trophy winning QB will visit the Raiders next week, and he is expected to sign a contract.
The move makes sense for many reasons. The first and most glaring is that the Raiders need a backup QB. As it is now, second-year QB Terrelle Pryor is the backup.
