ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Quarterback Jeff Garcia is returning to the Bay Area after agreeing to a deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Raiders senior executive John Herrera told The Associated Press that the four-time Pro Bowler will join the club's offseason workout program immediately alongside starter JaMarcus Russell.

Garcia spent the past two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, starting 24 games and leading them to the playoffs, but wasn't re-signed by the club.

The 39-year-old quarterback enjoyed the best seasons of his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, passing for more than 16,000 yards from 1999-2003.
