Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 at 10:40 am in Oakland Raiders.
Travis Tripucka just Tweeted that he is headed to Oakland, presumably for a workout as a potential replacement for injured long-snapper Jon Condo.
“Oakland California, here I come!” Tripucka said in a Tweet. “Another opportunity. Couldn’t be happier! Raider Nation better be ready for the lunchmeat.”
The Raiders practice Wednesday begins at 11:10. The team has not released any information about Tripucka on whether he is working out today or if he signed a contract.
Tripucka, the son of former Notre Dame star basketball player Kelly Tripucka, spent time with the St. Louis Rams during the offseason after being wooed there by former Raiders special teams coach John Fassel.
Condo suffered a concussion Monday night against the San Diego Chargers. He won’t be able to play this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins unless he passes a series of tests and gets cleared by team doctros.
Tripucka played at the University of Massachusetts. He was waived by the Rams on Aug. 27.
