Oakland Raiders Fire Scout, Tryout Jim Sorgi

Former backup to Peyton Manning to try out for the Raiders.



    Jim Sorgi will reportedly work out for the Oakland Raiders Tuesday.

    On the day the Oakland Raiders reportedly fired longtime scout Jon Kingdon, the team is 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. The team is also expected to bring in former USC star 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.
