A second veteran defensive tackle is now reportedly signing with the Raiders just ahead of their mandatory minicamp Tuesday. Former Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Frostee Rucker is headed to Oakland according to Adam Schefter.

Adding the 34-year-old comes on the same day as the signing of 32-year-old nose tackle Ahtyba Rubin. Rucker a veteran of 12 NFL seasons and Rubin of 10 NFL seasons.

Rucker has played 3-4 defensive end for most of his career, first for the Bengals, then one season for the Browns, and the last five seasons with the Cardinals. Last season he put of decent numbers with 30 combined tackles (24 solo) and 1.5 sacks starting all 16 games. It was his best numbers since 2012 in Cleveland — also the last time he was a 16-game starter.

The 6-3, 270-pounder would line up at 4-3 defensive tackle for the Raiders.
