Matt Leinart signed a one-year contract with the Oakland Raiders this week to serve as Carson Palmer's backup.   

The two Heisman Trophy winners are used to this scenario.  Leinart was Palmer's understudy in 2001 and 2002 before taking over for the 2003 NFL Draft No. 1 overall pick.

Combined, the duo passed for 171 touchdowns in their Trojan careers. 

The quarterback photo from 2001 has a few familiar faces with Palmer and Leinart joined by Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel, Hawaii head coach Norm Chow and Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian.
