NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora cited league sources Monday in reporting that 39-year-old free agent Todd Bouman will be among the quarterbacks working out for the Raiders this week. The team's search comes on the heels of the broken collarbone suffered by starter Jason Campbell, who said he could be back before the end of the season.
The Raiders have contacted several other quarterbacks -- Trent Edwards, David Garrard and Josh McCown among them -- on a preliminary basis, but none of them will work out for the team for various reasons, league sources told La Canfora. But Bouman, who played for Raiders coach Hue Jackson in Baltimore, will audition.
Garrard is out of the mix because of a herniated disc in his back that will require surgery and is expected to sideline him for four to six weeks.
