Terrelle Pryor | QB | Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are working on designing packages to get QB Terrelle Pryor on the field next season.
Huddle Up: Pryor and Carson Palmer have disparate skill sets, and if Palmer returns it would be setting Pryor up for failure asking him to run the same offense. However, he does have skills and it makes sense for Oakland to take advantage of them. Whether the Raiders turn into a full-fledged read-option team with Pryor at the helm likely depends on whether or not Palmer is agreeable to reworking his contract.

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said it will be important to see what QB Terrelle Pryor can do during offseason workouts and minicamps to get a better sense of what the team has at the quarterback position. The Raiders want to know whether Pryor can do for them what San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick did this past season. 'If you have a guy that can stay there and play 65 plays a game and do those things and also be able to throw the ball from point A to point B accurately, if he possesses those skills as well, then you certainly have something,' Olson said. 'So that's what we'll have to find out with Terrelle Pryor. We know what kind of an athlete he is. We need to find out what kind of decision maker he is, and we need to find out if he's a guy that can also sit in the pocket and deliver the ball from point A to point B accurately and on time and making the right decisions.'
Huddle Up: The read-option craze appears to be spreading across the Bay. Pryor has the potential to match Kapernick as a runner, but his passing skills need more polish. In any case, it sounds like Pryor will be given every opportunity to win Oakland's starting gig.

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said in a radio interview Tuesday, Jan. 22, that QB Terrelle Pryor will have a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job in 2013.
Huddle Up: Pryor didn't exactly set the world on fire in his limited engagement at the end of the 2012 season. And it's tough to envision an offense in which the Raiders could easily switch back and forth between Pryor and Carson Palmer. But at least it won't be dull during Oakland's training camp.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor displayed leadership, poise and heart in his Week 17 start, despite completing just 13-of-28 passes. Although he is still somewhat raw, Pryor may have shown enough to receive a shot at starting for the Raiders 2013, particularly if he shows strides in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Leadership, poise, heart, and inaccurate passing... do the Jets need another backup they'll never play? If the Raiders head into 2013 with Pryor as their starter you can start wiping Denarius Moore, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and Brandon Myers off your fantasy boards right now.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor will be the 15th player to start for the team at quarterback since the start of the 2003 season.
Huddle Up: That stat says it all about the fantasy wasteland that has been the Raiders' passing game over the past decade,

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen announced Friday that Terrelle Pryor will get the start at QB, but he expects the offensive game plan to be scaled back some against the San Diego Chargers in Week 17. 'I don't think you're going to be the same with either quarterback as you would with Carson because Carson's been getting all the reps and he has the full command of the offense,' Allen said. 'So, yeah, I would think we'd be scaled back a little bit with either one of those quarterbacks.'
Huddle Up: This should be interesting -- unless you were planning on starting a Raiders' pass-catcher this week. In 3 career NFL games, Pryor is 1-of-2 passing for 5 yards, and he's rushed once for 2 yards. His biggest fantasy contribution came on a trick play last week when he hauled in a pass for 22 yards. In other words, those who own the Chargers' defense are licking their fantasy chops.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor doesn't have full command of the offense.
Huddle Up: That means your Week 17 Silver & Black starter likely will be Matt Leinart with Pryor also seeing some snaps as he has in the past few games. Leinart saw his first real action of the season in Week 16, going 16-of-32 for 115 yards and an interception.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he expects QB Terrelle Pryor to get some playing time against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15. Pryor has been active but has yet to play the last two games.
Huddle Up: Carson Palmer owners beware: It looks like the rumored playing time for Pryor you've been hearing about for weeks is at hand.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he'd like to see more of QB Terrelle Pryor and RB Taiwan Jones and in the season's final three games. Pryor hasn't played at all, while Jones has only eight touches in 13 games this season.
Huddle Up: With the Raiders going nowhere at 3-10, fantasy owners of Carson Palmer and Darren McFadden are hereby put on notice ...

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said he is not opposed to seeing QB Terrelle Pryor receive some playing time this season. 'That's the only way I can evaluate him,' McKenzie said. Pryor has been inactive for all 11 games so far.
Huddle Up: Definitely something to keep in mind if you're planning on using Carson Palmer as your main QB in the fantasy playoffs.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor is expected to see the most playing time of all quarterbacks in the team's preseason opener Monday, Aug. 13.
Huddle Up: The Raiders are Carson Palmer's show, and Matt Leinart is the expected backup. But Pryor hasn't had much opportunity to play since joining Oakland via the supplemental draft so the team wants to see what he can do. Don't be surprised if at some point the Raiders show a Wildcat-like package designed to take advantage of Pryor's running ability; if nothing else, it will give opponents something to spend time preparing for during the week.
