Boller signs with Rams, not Raiders


Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Forget about the notion of Kyle Boller trying to resurrect his NFL career near where he had collegiate success.

Boller, a first-round pick out of California, signed with the St. Louis Rams on Saturday.

The Raiders were interested in Boller as a backup to JaMarcus Russell. Oakland could still pursue a veteran, perhaps Jeff Garcia. There's also Bruce Gradkowski and Andrew Walter, and the team could also bring back Marques Tuiasosopo.
