NFL Trade Rumors: Oakland Raiders not finding fair value for Terrelle Pryor


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.

Per ESPN.com:

 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.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if this was true.

  • Bob

    Just move along folks. Nothing to see here.

    This is not new. The Raiders had Vince Evans late in his career. Fast mobile QB with a good arm and no accuracy. Pryor does not have the arm Evans did.

  • Al

    Wish TP well. Hope he can continue his career.

    The Raiders gave up too soon on Terrelle Pryor. There is only one direction for him to go up!^

    • doe

      RM & da jobs on the line, can’t afford to wait on pryor

      • Ecade

        DA is not a Head Coach has nothing to do with Pryor ..

    • Beezy

      Unemployment office?

    • Terrence Healy

      McGloin spent the office season Training with Jeff Garcia and the Raiders receivers, Pryor hung out with his friends and got his hair Dyed Blond. Pryor was with the Raiders for 2 years and still don’t know the play book. So, as in Charlie in the Chocolate Factory, Pryor is going up and Out.

    • Lar Dog

      That’s why no one really wants him? Or for what the Raiders want in return?

  • R Tucka

    He’s a better Tebow nothing more.

    • Beezy

      No he isnt. Tim Tebow won games lol

      • Ecade

        Defense won games for Tebow , Tebow couldn’t buy a first down in the first half ..

        • Beezy

          Tebow dominates 4th quarter though. Who cares what the first half look like when you winning?

          • Ecade

            Without the Defense getting stops the whole game Tebow wouldnt of had a chance to dominate 4th qt that’s why it matters . And I wouldn’t call completing a few passes dominant ..

          • Beezy

            Dont matter how much you try to discredit Tebow its not changing the fact that Pryor is trash. Tebow beats Pryor in almost every category. That in itself is embarrassing.

          • Ecade

            Not discrediting Tebow at All he was surrounded by talent and had one of the best defenses in the league and despite him not getting a first down for 3 out of the 4 qtr his team was still in a position to win .Not discrediting Tebow at all just giving credit to the defense for keeping them in the game ..

      • R Tucka

        Lol right we judge this thing by wins and losses.

  • Beezy

    Fair trade value? Some crumb cakes? Arby’s coupon? Pack of Newports? What do you think he is worth? He is the black Tim Tebow except the actual Tim Tebow wins games.

    • Big Mouse

      TP just need some time and he be a good qb!! Come on guys he’s better than McGloin.

      • Lar Dog

        Really? Not really? Why do you say that?

        • Ecade

          He had more wins ..

          • Lar Dog

            No he is not better The D was terrible when McGloin played. We scored 24 pts a game with McGloin and 17 pts a game with Pryor. I admire that Pryor works hard, but he is missing something to be even a decent NFL QB. Reading a defense, decision making was questionable.

          • Ecade

            Mcgolin 1 win with a Better line – TP 3 wins and if the defense Holds up Pryor beats Indy the first game . I think Pryor is better just my opinion ..

          • Lar Dog

            I get ya on the Indy game, but he made 2 critical mistakes. 2 int’s. One on the 1st drive that should have given us at least a FG and on the last drive. FG wins the game. On the defense, D played decent early in the season. We had little depth and a lot of injuries. Players playing way too many snaps, they where beat up and worn down.

            You can have your opinion, but Pryor is a gonner and I bet out of football as a QB next season unless he changes positions.

          • Ecade

            I think the Play calling at the end of the game was suspect we had plenty of time to run the ball we didn’t need to take shots at that time, this goes back to poor coaching and not putting the players in the right position to succeeded , If you go back and watch the early games the only reason the defense played good was because the offense had ball control we didn’t score lots of points but TP held onto the ball switched fields meaning the offense has the ball on their side of the 50 and not ours what this did was allow the defense to rest and makes it harder for the Offense to score points. I’m not the best writer but I spent 3 years in the NFL as a Player and to me Pryor was giving a bad deal ..

          • Lar Dog

            I get ya. I really thought Pryor might have it after a great game against SD, but he really flopped after that. I did want him to succeed.

            He is not our future or even next season QB. I get ya on the bad deal, but it is what it is. Nice discussing this topic with you

          • Ecade

            You say Flop I say the whole team flopped but the Coaches Flopped more than anyone DA has no idea what talent looks like and doesn’t know the first thing about developing talent , So I don’t blame a first year starting QB for having a bad game after being benched for no other reason than the O-line playing bad . If Jackson was the Coach Pryor would of Played how he played against the Colts all season, let’s not forget after the first few weeks all experts were biting their tongues and saying Pryor might be the future for the Raiders then Injuries hit the O-line and the Running backs and the team went down from there but all the so called fans that no nothing about football blamed it on Pryor when he didn’t have a second to set his feet let alone find a Wr down field.. But Nice discussing this topic with you also hope you can understand my writing lol have a good one ..

          • Lar Dog

            He still is not better than McGloin. No one is wanting to give up much for Pryor, but I bet teams would for McGloin. DEF played terrible with McGloin at QB. McGloin, 24 pts per game, Pryor 17. I admire Pryor for his hard work, but he is missing something, can’t read a defense,makes terrible decisions. 20 to 30 yard sacks.

      • Beezy

        Only thing he is better than McGloin in is 40 yard dash. That’s it.

        • Ecade

          The 40 yard and I think He had more wins than Mcgolin also ..

    • 757Raiderfan

      Lol

  • Terrence Healy

    Actually, Pryor would make a good TE, he is a big target, fast on his feet.

  • Raider Grant

    I would love it if TP stayed a Raider by converting to a TE! If catches like he reads his checks down options, time for him to move along!

  • Stanley Carr

    If he’s such garbage y not just cut him…u watch TP ends up with real coaches n blows up… Just hope he leaves our division… Y’all haters trip me out mcgarbage is a 5 feet tall piece of shit..lol

    • Ecade

      lol thanks @Stanley

  • Kevin Hubley

    Everybody forgets that the o line for the first half of the season was all practice squad players and Pryor was the only one that could do anything with it. Magloin lost games when the line got healthy again. Plus Pryor had no help from McFadden or Jennings. Jennings broke out after the line came back. If Pryor had a healthy line and a decent running game around him he could be great.

    • Ecade

      Great Comment Kevin ..

  • Dav3yd

    Wrong mistake.. he will be a top 3 QB in a couple years

    • Beezy

      Where? Arena league or CFL?
