Free agent QB Tyler Thigpen will work out for the Jets on Friday.
After "reaching out" to Rex Grossman, the Jets are really digging deep as they look for a veteran to stash behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty. Thigpen's last regular-season appearance came in 2012 with the Bills, where he played for current Jets OC Chan Gailey. Thigpen hasn't made a start since 2010. Tue, Aug 11, 2015 07:06:00 PM

Browns signed QB Tyler Thigpen.

Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is out, Brian Hoyer (shoulder, bicep) is very questionable and Rex Grossman didn't want to sign on. So the Browns settle on Thigpen, who will likely back up Connor Shaw in Sunday's finale against the Ravens. Thigpen was with the team for a few months of the offseason program before getting cut early in camp.

Browns released QB Tyler Thigpen.

Thigpen is losing his roster spot to Rex Grossman. The 30-year-old completed 3-of-12 passes for 38 yards and an interception in Saturday night's preseason opener versus Detroit. Thigpen, out of the league in 2013, may be done.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 09:46:00 AM

Browns agreed to terms with QB Tyler Thigpen.

Thigpen, who was out of the league last season, will be an offseason arm. Depending on what the Browns do in the draft, Thigpen has an outside shot at earning No. 3 duties in Cleveland.

In addition to Vince Young, free agent QB Tyler Thigpen is also trying out for the Browns this week.

The Browns are kicking the tires on some mobile quarterbacks as Kyle Shanahan installs his bootleg-heavy scheme. Thigpen was out of the league last season and served as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup in Buffalo the two years before that. Young should be able to beat him out if there's only one roster spot to be had.

Updating a previous item, the Browns are NOT meeting with free agent QB Tyler Thigpen on Friday night.

The Browns are meeting with themselves to discuss free agent quarterbacks who may include Thigpen. They are not huddling with Thigpen individually. The Browns are in pursuit of a veteran upgrade up Jason Campbell behind Brandon Weeden. Brian Hoyer is done for the season with a tear of his right ACL.
Fri, Oct 4, 2013 09:32:00 PM

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports the Browns will meet with free agent QB Tyler Thigpen on Friday night.

Brian Hoyer (ACL tear) is headed to injured reserve, so Thigpen could push Jason Campbell to be Brandon Weeden's backup. 29 years old, Thigpen drew light interest from the Raiders, Seahawks, and Dolphins this offseason.
Fri, Oct 4, 2013 03:24:00 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have been in contact with free agent QB Tyler Thigpen.

Third-string QB Pat Devlin suffered a hand injury in Sunday night's preseason loss to the Cowboys, and Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore are the only other quarterbacks on the roster. Thigpen, 29, backed up Ryan Fitzpatrick in Buffalo last season, but played for the Dolphins from 2009-10.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 06:20:00 PM

The Raiders are working out free agent QB Tyler Thigpen on Tuesday.

Thigpen's tryout comes ahead of Seneca Wallace's, who will work out on Wednesday. The Raiders are intent on adding a veteran "mentor" for Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor, but would be better off giving the roster spot to someone who might actually play, or remain in Oakland beyond 2013.
Tue, Apr 9, 2013 04:01:00 PM

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "everything (points)" to the Seahawks signing free agent QB Tyler Thigpen.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Monday that Thigpen was on the "short list" to replace Matt Flynn, but it sounds like he's the only name on the list. Thigpen has attempted just 83 passes since 2008, but has experience with the read option, and will come exceedingly cheap. He turns 29 on April 14.
Tue, Apr 2, 2013 03:32:00 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports free agent Tyler Thigpen is on the "short list" to back up Russell Wilson in Seattle.

The journeyman veteran has experience running the read-option, and would come on the cheap after backing up Ryan Fitzpatrick in Buffalo last season. Thigpen has attempted just 83 passes since starting 11 games for the Chiefs in 2008.
Mon, Apr 1, 2013 11:25:00 AM

Tyler Thigpen will be the Bills' No. 2 quarterback in Week 1.

Tarvaris Jackson is eventually expected to be Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup, but he's only been with the team for nine days and has learned a fraction of the terminology.
Thu, Sep 6, 2012 09:55:00 AM

Tyler Thigpen accepted a $1 million pay cut to stay with the Bills as a third-string quarterback.

It makes sense for both sides. Thigpen was previously due $2.5 million -- a sum he couldn't have come close to elsewhere -- while the Bills saved some salary cap space on a player still highly regarded by Chan Gailey. Thigpen will open the season behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and newly acquired Tarvaris Jackson.
Sun, Sep 2, 2012 08:57:00 PM

Coach Chan Gailey acknowledged that Tyler Thigpen has fallen behind Vince Young in the race for Bills backup quarterback duties.

Young outperformed Thigpen in the second preseason game and has essentially locked up the No. 2 job, which may cost Thigpen his roster spot. "So you’d have to say Vince came out a little bit ahead tonight," Gailey said. Through two preseason contests, Young is 13-of-26 (50 percent) for 173 yards (6.7 YPA), and 37 yards on five runs. Thigpen is 11-of-23 (47.8 percent) for 94 yards (4.1 YPA) and two interceptions. So neither is setting the world on fire.
Sun, Aug 19, 2012 12:18:00 PM

Tyler Thigpen was the second-string quarterback in Thursday's preseason opener.

Thigpen is locked in a battle with Vince Young for the backup job behind Vince Young. He completed 3-of-8 passes for 38 yards and an interception while Young went 5-of-12 for 50 yards and took three sacks. Neither player looks ready to run this offense if called upon.
