Of course, Pryor’s potential return to the Raiders likely hinges on Oakland’s desire to keep head coach Dennis Allen who butted heads with the running quarterback.
Allen nearly benched Pryor in Oakland’s Week 17 loss – though that wouldn’t have been the first time this season as Allen sat Pryor in favor of Matt McGloin for multiple weeks.
The constant uncertainty has left a distaste in Terrelle Pryor’s mouth, who was noncommittal about returning to the Raiders next season in his post game comments:
Allen and Pryor downplay their differences, but not to the point where Pryor would say he wants to be back next season.
“I don’t think right now is the time for that,” he said. “Get to talk and see what goes on with the organization and have a chat.”
When defenses focused on stopping Pryor’s run game, he struggled mightily, leaving many to question his ability to be an NFL-level quarterback moving forward.
