ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have signed quarterback Josh Booty, the former prep star who has been out of football since 2003 and has never thrown a pass in the NFL.

Booty was one of the nation's top high school quarterbacks in 1993 when he decided to play baseball instead of football. He spent five years with the Florida Marlins but played only 13 games at the major league level.

In two seasons at LSU, Booty threw for 3,951 yards and 24 touchdowns and was taken by Seattle in the sixth round of the 2001 draft. Acquired off waivers by Cleveland later that year, Booty spent parts of three seasons with the Browns.

Booty joins Andrew Walter as the only quarterbacks on the Raiders' roster. The team cut ties with last year's starter, Aaron Brooks, and third-stringer Marques Tuiasosopo signed a one-year deal with the Jets. Oakland has the No. 1 pick in next month's draft and could select quarterback JaMarcus Russell of LSU.

Booty's brother, John David Booty, was the quarterback last season at Southern California, where new Raiders coach Lane Kiffin was an assistant.

The team also recently signed defensive backs Chris Johnson and B.J. Ward.

Why do I get the feeling that if WildMarlinMan was a Raider fan he would LOVE this signing?
