Tui No. 2, again?
Head coach Lane Kiffin declined to talk about the significance of Tuiasosopo's appearance in camp but hinted a deal was likely coming.
"I can't comment on that, you guys can probably figure that out," Kiffin said. "Until about 2 p.m. I can't really say anything."
Tuiasosopo spent his first six seasons in the NFL in Oakland, serving as a back-up to Rich Gannon, Kerry Collins and Aaron Brooks. He started only two games and played in 11 overall before signing with the Jets in 2007.
The 29-year-old Tuiasosopo was Oakland's second-round draft pick in 2001.
Russell, the No. 1 overall draft pick last year, is the Raiders' unquestioned starter heading this year but there is little behind him. Andrew Walter was on the trading block last year and only stuck around because of injuries to Daunte Culpepper and Josh McCown.
The only other quarterbacks on the team's mini-camp roster were Jeff Otis from Columbia, Erik Meyer of Eastern Washington and rookie Brian White from Portland State.
There had been talk that the Raiders might be willing to bring Culpepper back but now that Tuiasosopo is apparently coming to town, that would likely squash any talk of Culpepper returning.
Sporting blue jeans and a powder blue shirt, Tuiasosopo greeted old friends and teammates on the practice field but stayed mainly in the background as the Raiders went through the two-hour practice. What appeared to be a list of the plays was in his back pocket and Tuiasosopo regularly chatted with the rest of the quarterbacks.
