Now that the secret is out, Raider Nation is fully aware that quarterback Terrelle Pryor no longer wants to be in Oakland anymore. Reports have surfaced that had Pryor asking to be traded or released as early as January of 2014. It is Pryor’s wish to be a starting quarterback somewhere in the NFL, but he knows that it won’t be in Oakland. This is especially certain now that the Raiders signed Matt Schaub and named him the starter.
Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL and Fox Sports has also reported that there a few suitors who have been in contact with the Oakland Raiders about a possible trade for Pryor. I’m sure they’re calling to find out the value trade that the Raiders are looking for. I can’t imagine it to be more than a 6th or 7th round draft pick, but I could always be wrong.
Marvez also reported that if Pryor is not traded before April 21st, he would be released by the Raiders. There are a few teams out there that could benefit from having Pryor on their roster, but I’m not sure it is going to be in a starting role.
Once Pryor leaves Oakland, he will represent the very last draft pick that Al Davis ever took, even if it was in a supplemental draft. Davis took a chance on Pryor, and it did not pan out for either one of them. Only time will tell if Pryor was worth the wait, or if he is yet another casualty who couldn’t make the switch from college to the NFL.
