    The Oakland Raiders have plenty of roster moves they need to make before the start of the season.
         

    Apparently trading for Matt Leinart isn't one of them. The Raiders are denying an ESPN report saying the team has had discussions about trading for Leinart.      
    The Raiders say in a statement they have never discussed acquiring Leinart in a trade from Arizona and that they are "very happy" about their quarterback situation.
         
    Jason Campbell goes into the season as the starter in Oakland. He sustained a stinger and an injured right wrist last week in an exhibition game but is expected to be ready for the season opener Sept. 12 in Tennessee.
         
    Bruce Gradkowski and Kyle Boller are expected to be the backups.
