Raiders Bring In Ex-Badger QB For Workout

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland 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 New York 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.
