It’s no secret that the Oakland Raiders want to move on from former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor but they’re clearly not in the business of just giving him away. While the Raiders have been looking at trade for Pryor, no deals have been struck and the team has kept him on roster.
Raiders beat writer Paul Gutierrez believes that this is because the Raiders can’t find fair value in a trade and won’t be just giving Pryor away to be rid of him.
If the Oakland Raiders could have traded Terrelle Pryor for what they consider fair value yesterday, the deal would have been done, IMHO. That’s not a slam on Pryor. Not at all. It’s just so obvious the Raiders prefer more of a traditional pocket passer, a la the Matts … Schaub and McGloin.
The market for quarterbacks was never really on fire and the market for Pryor is especially cold. It’s not clear if that’s because the Raiders are overvaluing Pryor or if it’s because teams truly are unsure of his talents, but no matter what the reason, Pryor remains on the Raiders roster and that’s something that may change before the draft.
