Last week it was confirmed that Terrelle Pryor would be parting ways with agent Jerome Stanley in light of Stanley’s comments surrounding Dennis Allen heading into Week 17 of the Raiders season, a game in which Pryor was slated to start ahead of Matt McGloin after losing his job.
Stanley infamously accused the Raiders of “Setting Pryor up to fail.” In the end Stanley may have been setting up his own demise as Pryor was quick to move on.
Pryor was also quick to get new representation, with Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reporting that Drew Rosenhaus has been rehired to be the agent of the Raiders quarterback.
Per a league source, Pryor has hired Drew and Jason Rosenhaus to handle Pryor’s interests going forward.
Drew and Jason Rosenhaus represented Pryor earlier in his career, when he emerged from Ohio State and entered the NFL via the supplemental draft. A third-round pick after the lockout ended in 2011, Pryor has completed three years of his four-year rookie deal.
Absent an extension with the Raiders, Pryor will be a free agent in 2015. The Raiders could decide to move on from Pryor, or to keep him around at a relatively cheap base salary of $705,000.
It will be interesting to see if Pryor rehiring Rosenhaus signals a move from outside of Oakland this offseason, or if it is simply preparation for 2015 when Pryor’s contract expires with the Raiders. For now it is a non surprising move from the quarterback who is going back to his old agent after realizing that Jerome Stanley might not have been as quality of representation as the infamous Rosenhaus.
