Raiders will listen to offers for Terrelle Pryor


According to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times, the Oakland Raiders are very likely to listen to offers for quarterback Terrelle Pryor this coming offseason.

Pryor was given the starting job to begin last season, but was unable to stay consistent throughout the whole season and ended up getting replaced by Matt McGloin towards the end of the year. There will likely be quite a few teams interested in acquiring Pryor at the right price to be a backup.

Pryor played in 11 games this past season with the Raiders, passing for 1,798 yards and seven touchdowns, but also threw 11 interceptions. His arm has quite a few issues to be worked out, but with the right coaching he could very well become a good backup. The best part of his game is his ability to make plays with his legs. He ran the football 83 times for 576 yards and two touchdowns.

As of right now, this report is simply speculation from Corkran, but it makes a lot of sense. The Raiders don’t appear to value Pryor too terribly much, and they have thought about moving him before. It was made apparent down the stretch of last season that they don’t believe he is starting material, but he has the physical abilities to become a very solid backup quarterback.

Overall, this is something to keep an eye on, and there are a lot of teams out there that need some quarterback help. Depending on the asking price that the Raiders set, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Pryor get traded this offseason. There were no reports as to what teams he could land with, but one that makes a lot of sense is the Jaguars. This is certainly a developing story that is worth keeping an eye on as the offseason rolls around.
