Raiders to Try Out Former Manning Backup Jim Sorgi

The Raiders are bringing in quarterback Jim Sorgi for a tryout. Sorgi’s agent, Matt Brei, said Sorgi will work out for Oakland on Tuesday.

The Raiders are looking for a veteran backup quarterback to play behind starter Carson Palmer. They are also bringing in Matt Leinart this week.

Sorgi spent six years in Indianapolis as Peyton Manning’s backup. He spent the 2010 season with the Giants on injured reserve with a right shoulder injury and did not play last season.

The only other quarterbacks on the roster currently are Terrelle Pryor and Rhett Bomar.

    Who is Rhett Bomar? Wasn’t he the guy in Gone With the Wind?

    I would MUCH rather have Leinart behind Palmer than Sorgi!

    Sorgi is to Manning what a receptionist is to the physician. Unfortunately, Manning can’t throw for him….
