The Oakland Raiders have been looking to trade quarterback Terrelle Pryor for some time now but they haven’t been able to find a deal they like. But with the NFL Draft preaching fast, the Raiders would like to get a deal done sooner rather than later and have set Monday as a date they’d like to have seen a trade made.
According to Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, the Raiders would like to trade Pryor before Monday which means we could see a deal materialize this weekend.

The big question is how low will the Raiders be willing to go on their asking price for Pryor. It can only be assumed that their high asking price is scaring teams off as Pryor isn’t that bad of a backup option and if Josh Freeman can find work, Pryor will too.
There’s also been talk of just releasing Pryor, which is something we saw done with DeSean Jackson and Chris Johnson who are both markedly better than Pryor. It’s also worth noting that this is the last player that Al Davis ever drafted, which means once Pryor is gone, so too is the last draft remnants of Al Davis’ tenure.
