Former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia, 37, will be one of the Raiders' top priorities once the free-agency period begins tonight at 9. (http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/sports/football/nfl/oakland_raiders/16807337.htm) The former San Jose State star is regarded as the top quarterback available in free agency. His stock soared after he replaced injured regular Donovan McNabb midway through last season and guided the Philadelphia Eagles to an NFC playoff berth. The Raiders, Denver Broncos and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to show the most interest in Garcia. The Eagles declined to pursue Garcia now that McNabb is expected back at full strength. ``If the Raiders call once free agency begins, Oakland definitely will be one of the places he seriously considers,'' said Steve Baker, Garcia's agent

Possibly to groom a rookie quarterback or continue to groom Aaron Rodgers when/if they do trade for him.

Aaron Rodgers can't just get traded to a team and start right away, he barely even got the Packer's playbook down in 2 years in the NFL.

they still need a QB, just shows that they don't want to start whoever their young QB is (Jamarcus Russel most likely) right away.

I don't know about this, Al Davis loves the deep ball, Garcia is a WC QB, I just don't see the fit.
