Terrelle Pryor asked for trade


Oakland Raiders backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor has to see the writing on the wall after the team traded for Matt Schaub, and they have committed to Schaub as their starting quarterback going forward; that much is evident. Pryor was never expected to have a future with the Raiders organization going into 2014, even if he has a big arm, blazing speed, and showed some flashes last season. His accuracy and decision-making are too poor to make him a franchise quarterback in this league, so it isn’t surprising for the Raiders to want to move away from him.

I’m sure the Raiders aren’t too keen on keeping Pryor, and it’s clear that he doesn’t want to stay either. Per a source close to FOX Sports’s Alex Marvez, Pryor has indeed asked to be traded from the team, and Marvez clarifies that he hasn’t asked for his release (I’m sure he’d be willing to be released if it came down to that).

In a press conference today, Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie stated Pryor’s agent relayed to him that his client wanted to pursue a starting job elsewhere. To that I say, good luck with that. Pryor isn’t going to start anywhere anytime soon, but you could do a lot worse with a project player at the position.

    Stanley must be mainstreaming it up. All of us true Raiders are teaming up against the media pundits who are saying exactly what you just said Stanley…. Mcgarbage? How childish. McGloin is a good QB. Watch the damn tape.

    Same garbage, an inconsistent front office, with inconsistent coaching, and a young QB they never really wanted, and invested no time to develop, and he’s the problem? He could do better elsewhere.
