Raiders Trade QB Terrelle Pryor To The Seahawks

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is no longer a member of the Oakland Raiders as he has reportedly been traded to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick in the upcoming draft.

It was looking like Pryor would be released within the next 24 hours, but Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie wound up getting something for the former supplemental draft pick after all.

The early speculation is that Pryor will remain a quarterback with the Seahawks and that he’ll now compete with Tarvaris Jackson for the opportunity to back up starter Russell Wilson.

The Raiders decided to move on from Pryor after signing Matt Schaub earlier in the offseason. During his short career with the Raiders, Pryor was 170 of 302 passing for 1,953 yards with nine touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Pryor was probably getting moved even before they signed Shaub, when McGloin beat him out.
