It appears there will be some wholesale changes at the quarterback position for the Oakland Raiders in 2014, at least, that’s the word from beat writer Scott Bair.
The CSN Bay Area insider held his weekly chat recently and in addition to suggesting that Josh Freeman would be the Raiders starting quarterback in 2014, also suggested that Terrelle Pryor has no future with the Raiders organization as a quarterback.
It’s very clear Pryor doesn’t have a future as a QB here.
Bair also went on to hint that it’s very possible that Pryor won’t be on the Raiders come training camp.
Understandably, the team will do everything they can to trade him if they don’t plan on keeping him, but they’re going to struggle to find a taker who will give up anything of value. Yes, he’s still just 24-years-old and yes, he had a very hot start to the season but the market just isn’t there.
Speculation is that the Raiders will likely be successful in obtaining a late-round pick for Pryor, but they won’t secure anything near a third-round pick, which Pryor originally cost them.
