Raiders meet with quarterback at NFL Combine

The Oakland Raiders have been linked to the word quarterback since the off-season began. This weekend the top brass didn't disappoint - meeting with a quarterback at the NFL Combine.

While JaMarcus Russell has been receiving the hype, Brady Quinn was the quarterback Oakland first spoke to in Indianapolis.

Brady Quinn did not get a chance to talk to much of the Raiders staff at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. He admitted to SilverandBlack.com that he spoke with two scouts and one Oakland coach but had not met with the main offensive staff.

Since Quinn left early and the Raiders were still in flux in terms of their head coach, Quinn became a bigger target at the NFL Combine.

The impressively built quarterback did not work out at the Combine but will do a full workout next week. The Raiders will be there in full force to check him out.

In the meantime, the Raiders spent time talking to the man and dissecting his ability to work under the pressure of several coaches and front office personnel, looking at different coverages, check-downs, while finding out more about the man.

Quinn completed 61.9 percent of his passes last year on 289-of-467 passing. He tossed 37 touchdowns to just seven interceptions.

The biggest knock on the Notre Dame signal caller has been his inability to win the big game.

With Aaron Brooks dismissed, the Raiders will be in the market for a quarterback. Whether they spend the number one overall pick on such a player will be determined by free agency and whether they feel they can trade down and still acquire the talent they want.

His workout will also determine much more as Brady also met with several other teams in the top five.
