Raiders targeting Young?
The Raiders are considering a move for Vince Young, while the Jets have an eye on Reggie Bush, writes Todd McShay.
The Raiders reportedly have serious interest in making a deal for the Saints' No. 2 overall selection, but Oakland is hoping to land Texas QB Vince Young, not Leinart. The Raiders might be falling for the Titans' tactic of publicizing that they prefer Young over Leinart at the No. 3 pick, which is also a likely smoke screen.
Raiders owner Al Davis is said to believe Young is a franchise-changing playmaker.
