With Seahawks liking Quinn, Raiders checking Thigpen

The backup quarterback wheel continues to spin, and it appears the Raiders are getting the Seahawks leftovers.

With a workout already scheduled with Seneca Wallace tomorrow, the Raiders had Tyler Thigpen in today for a workout, according to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com.

Both were a part of the Seahawks cattle-call Monday, which also included Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart (and it’s reasonable to expect he won’t be working out for the Raiders, since they allowed him to walk into free agency).

There are multiple reports of folks “hearing” that it “sounds like” Quinn’s Seattle’s choice among that group, though there’s no word of him “agreeing to” or “signing” anything yet.

When we hear more, we’ll let you know.

    Wow. I guess I actually do like Tebow… at least better than this option. This really puts things into perspective :(.

    no reason to get too comfortable now, the hawks will bring in others to compete through training camp for the #2 spot. They will also probably draft a guy.

    The Raiders need a HUNGRY QB room, just add JaMarcus.

    hahahha nah,

    Thigpen is fine with me.

    Surprised the Seahawks didn’t bring in Thigpen. He’s an ex-Viking.

    Why are they signing a reject from the bottom feeders? Quinn couldn’t make it in Cleveland, or any where else he’d been. If they pay him more than one million $, I’m gonna puke
    None of these rejects are any good!!!!!!!

    the more the merrier to compete…when it’s all done and said, may the three best stick, and the best of those start.

    He’ll now be known as Quinn the Rain Forest Inhabitant.

    Brendon Ayanbadejo is hoping that Brady Quinn will sign will sign with someone.

    Then according to him five players can come out of the closet.

    Well, I am certainly glad we were in such a hurry to get rid of a high caliber back-up like Flynn so that we could replace him with…with…with uh…. Brady Quinn?

    Quinn may be a nice guy or whatever, but I just don’t get why he still draws interest. He even makes Tebow look good. Quinn is an interception and fumble machine. Oh well, more power to him.

    Mel Kipers jumping for joy right now.

    Means nothing. Guy won’t beat out Portis, will be released. Seahawks know this, draft a developmental qb then put the rookie on the practice squad

    “(and it’s reasonable to expect he won’t be working out for the Raiders, since he’s ).”

    Since he’s what?

    There is no substitute for proofreading.

    The Browns have done the best job in the NFL finding back up QBs, guys like Quinn, Luke McCown, Charlie Frye then finding more back up to start like Kelly Holcomb, D.A., Gradkowski, Seneca Wallace. If anything we have an keen eye for back-ups.

  15. jredshoes says: Apr 9, 2013 5:36 PM

    I just realized where I went astray. My career plan should have been become a Chiefs quarterback, wash out and then make millions bouncing from team to team

  16. dannyreneau says: Apr 9, 2013 5:52 PM

    As both a Kansas City and Seattle fan all i can say is NOOOOOOOOO! DON’T DO IT PETE!!!!!

    @kwjsb Dang… Way to put a positive spin on it! Cheers!

    Thiggy would automatically be the best QB on the faider roster, and he’s a joke.

    Thigpen is a very good practice QB. He looks sharp and on point, he’s accurate, quick and convincing. Once he gets on the field, he looks like the polar opposite. I don’t know if its the pressure that brings him down or if its just a coincidence? I’m guessing it is the pressure that gets to him. He folds under it, makes bad decisions, can’t keep his mind straight. During Pre-season he looks great, when the Regular season starts, he goes back to being inaccurate and clueless.
    He has no problem making it on a teams roster, just has a problem staying there.
    Soon to be a Raider, for the time being.

    slickster35 gazes out the window of his single-wide trailer, admiring his rusted ’72 Camero sitting proudly on cinderblocks in his overgrown, weed-choked yard. He then slams his fist on the table and weeps, wondering why his mother ever slept with that fat biker sporting the “Just win!” tattoos on his knuckles in the first place.

    At least I know who my father is, and I don’t get shot at on a daily basis.

    And that single wide beats hell out of your cardboard box dwelling.

    BTW, it’s “camaro”. Way to get all educated out there in north mexico. You do your people proud. Now go mow a lawn, and get ready for your job interview in front of Home Depot.

    Camaro? Damn. You got me there, Hilljack. Of course, getting a spelling lesson from a guy that spells senile “senial” lessens the sting a bit. And the reason why taco vendors like myself choose to settle in the Bay area is mostly because Kansas City has a murder rate five times the national average, and we find the standard of living in Western Missouri reminds us too much of home.
