12:48 PM ET 04.12 | NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the offseason that the Oakland Raiders had "preliminary" conversations about bringing in free-agent quarterback Vince Young for a workout. On the heels of an impressive showing at the University Texas Pro Day late last month, the Raiders followed through on that workout Thursday. Young and former Baltimore Ravens backup Troy Smith both auditioned for the Raiders, Rapoport reported. "Heard Vince looked good," Rapoport added. Young will have to prove that he's made strides in accuracy and picking up NFL verbiage, but he does have the rise of the read-option offense in his favor as he attempts his comeback. The Raiders opted to take a pass on signing Seneca Wallace as a backup quarterback, perhaps due to their interest in Young.

Calling the interns idiots will just get you banned or cause the interns to post this article 3 or 4 more times today. Either way, we all lose :^(

In fairness, I think Jason Laconta-something was speculating...

Except he said in his tweet:

The Raiders are signing QB Seneca Wallace after working him out, Tyler Thigpen and perhaps others

How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?
