Terrelle Pryor | QB
Posted: 4/22/2014 3:39pm et
QB Terrelle Pryor acquired by the Seattle Seahawks in a trade with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, April 21, in exchange for a 2014 seventh-round draft pick, will compete with QBs Tarvaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels for the backup job to Russell Wilson. Pryor is scheduled to make $705,000 this year.
Huddle Up: Jackson is the more polished passer and has had 2 seasons in Pete Carroll's system, but Pryor is a bit underrated, especially considering that he only has 10 career starts. Pryor also is the better runner, having finished second to Cam Newton in 2013 with 576 ground yards.

The Oakland Raiders will release QB Terrelle Pryor if they are not able to trade him by Monday, April 21.
Huddle Up: That's not exactly news that will drive Pryor's price tag up. Sounds like next week will be open season for teams interested in adding a running quarterback.

The Oakland Raiders hope to trade QB Terrelle Pryor before the start of the offseason program Monday, April 21.
Huddle Up: The Raiders were unable to make their offense work with the run-first Pryor at the helm, so they're moving forward with Matt Schaub. We'll see what team wants to give the athletic Pryor a shot at a backup gig.

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said QB Terrelle Pryor likely will be released or traded in the near future. McKenzie said Pryor wants to be a starting quarterback next season.
Huddle Up: Pryor did finish second among all QBs with 576 rushing yards a year ago, but his starting run in Oakland lasted only 10 games, and it's hard to find another team at the moment where he'd have a decent chance to start right away.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen isn't sure if the team's future quarterback is currently on their roster. Allen has said QB Matt McGloin has a future with the team but hasn't been as optimistic about QB Terrelle Pryor. 'I'm not sure that we have the quarterback of the future in the building right now, but again I think we'll go through the offseason evaluation process, I think we'll go back through all the tapes, we'll comb through everything. I do think we have a better idea of what we have at the quarterback position, but again I think, listen, that's the most important position on the football field,' Allen said.
Huddle Up: Both Prior and McGloin had brief flashes of success, but neither appears to be the solution in Oakland. A new quarterback might buy Dennis Allen a couple more seasons at the helm, but it's no guarantee.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen fired back Tuesday, Dec. 24, about the claims of QB Terrelle Pryor's agent, who said Monday, Dec. 23, that the coach is setting the quarterback up to fail by starting him in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos. "Well, first is, I'd say that's the stupidest thing I've ever frickin' heard,' Allen said. 'No coach in their right mind -- this isn't 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' This isn't made-for-TV drama. This is football, and we make our football decisions based solely on that. Nothing other than that."
Huddle Up: If you thought another lost season for the Silver & Black was going to end peacefully, think again.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor will be the starting quarterback Week 17.
Huddle Up: Matt McGloin has been uninspiring at best over the past weeks, and Pryor could be a decent fantasy start in Week 17 given his rushing skills and favorable matchup against a banged-up Denver defense.
