The Oakland Raiders have traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks for a seventh-round pick in this year’s entry draft. Pryor has one year remaining in his rookie contract. Since the Raiders recently acquired the quarterbacking skills of Matt Schaub, they don’t need Pryor.
Not that they ever needed Pryor. Not really. The Raiders picked up Prior in the third round of the 2011 supplemental draft. Prior left Ohio State after an investigation into players receiving money (and tattoos!) for memorabilia. It resulted in that phony hypocrite for a head coach Jim Tressel loosing his job. In his three-year NFL career, Pryor played in only 16 games.
Considering that the Seahawks don’t need a quarterback, there’s a good chance Pryor may see time at another position, something that better takes advantage of his size, speed, and athleticism.
