Raiders Plan on Releasing Terrelle Pryor If They Can’t Find Trade Partner By Monday


The Oakland Raiders plan on releasing Terrelle Pryor before Monday if they are unable to trade him, per Alex Marvez. Pryor has been on the trade block for some time and the Raiders would like to find a trade partner before offseason programs begin.

The Raiders picked up Matt Schaub in the offseason and he will be the starting quarterback for the team. Matt McGloin will be the backup to Schaub and the Raiders may add a quarterback through the draft.

Schaub should have a few seasons as the starter for the Raiders, he just needs to get back to hitting his own receivers and not tossing the ball to the defense. Last season, he struggled with the Texans and had a tendency to throw pick sixes. He was then benched in the middle of the season and the Texans ended up with the worst record in the league last year.

Pryor should generate interest from a few teams in the league. He showed the ability to escape the pocket and make plays with his feet. He needs to get better at playing under pressure and will need to work on getting the ball out to his receivers.

    So I guess he’s going to be released, and throw for 3,000 yards for another team?

    Some how he will come back and haunt us. I wish what ever the problem is between the staff and him would be over looked, because Pryor can play 7n this league.

    He may be able to make it as some kind of hybrid player, because he has tremendous athletic skills, AND, he is exciting to watch run all over the field. HE IS NOT A QB! He had 3 years to prove it, and countless opportunities. He has a 69 passer rating. That stinks. How many wide open receivers did he miss last year? I wish he’d stay, as a back-up or wideout, somebody to come in and run the wildcat, pistol type offense for a change of pace, sure, but, he can’t read the field, even Matt McGloin, the “camp arm” looked far more polished when he relieved Pryor.
