07:37 PM ET 04.09 | The Raiders are more likely than not to add another quarterback to their roster. After news broke that they would meet with Seneca Wallace tomorrow, Adam Caplan of the Sideline View reports that free agent quarterback Tyler Thigpen is working out with the Raiders today. Thigpen has played minimally in Buffalo over the past two seasons, completing 3/5 passes for 30 yards in 2012. His 15 minutes of fame came with the Chiefs in 2008, when injuries led to him becoming their starting quarterback. Thigpen completed 54.8 percent of his passes for 2,608 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions while the Chiefs went 1-11 in his starts. The Raiders already have two quarterbacks in Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor on their roster, but are seeking a veteran addition to help mentor the young quarterbacks.

Tebow will be available to be a backup QB for the Raiders after the Jets cut him.

I doubt the Jets can even get cutting him right

Wow. Tyler Thigpen and Seneca Wallace in the same story. Shouldn't the headline then read, "Who would be two of the crappiest QB's in the history of the NFL?" Believe in setting the bar low there Oakland?

He showed flashes of potential in 2008 when he played for those god awful Chiefs. He can scramble for his life. That OL sucked.

Sounds like a perfect fit for AZ.
