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.

    I say keep him if it comes down to just releasing him, but doubt McGinger would go do that. Let McGloin, Edwards, and TP fight for second reps! I believe TP could be somewhat better with health new o-line! If we pick up receiver that can spread the field for the long ball, TP ARM can get it there & there is no doubting that. Best of luck TP, and Go Raiders!!!

    Freeman just signed with the Giants

    If they were able to trade Pryor that would be amazing. It would be a true testament to the genius of Reggie McKenzie. Convincing a team to take a very athletic but yet erratic and indecisive project like Pryor requires a tremendous amount of focus on honing the abilities to literally shift the brain waves of others into believing one’s thoughts. I.e. Subliminal messages…… Like, “Pryor is the future, Pryor is great, Pryor will win you a championship, Pryor can think on his own”. If McKenzie can somehow plant that seed in a week minded GM, he just may be able to get a draft pick out of him. That would be a dream scenario. Wouldn’t it?

    Everyone forgets Tyvon Branch was an Al pick. Classic speed pick and a very underrated player but he got hurt week 2 and missed all of 2013. Was at the 2013 opener and him and Woodson looked very good on the back end vs Indy. I’m excited for them.

    Charles woodson, Sebastian janikowski, darren mcfadden, tyvon branch were all Al davis picks

  • Derrick Jones

    All these articles just speculation, nothing has came out off RAIDERS camp since the owners meeting. Shuab pay cut may have hushed things for a while let’s wait and see.

  • Tim Zook

    Very true but Branch is very good and nobody knows him

    I’ve got a ham sandwich here for ya… Sorry no picks.

  • erik

    Everyones stocked up he or edwards would prolly get cut as the raiders may pick up a draft qb so trade for any draft pick really

    Here’s a bridge for sale.

    What funny is so many people feel so high on Pryor because they saw him run fast a couple times and completely overlook the fact that he is a terrible QB. So if you need some more proof ask yourself why nobody has made a legit offer for him yet.

    Pryor was exciting in a non-competitive year for the Raiders but teams started to blitz to his right. He doesn’t go to his left nearly as well. The injury didn’t help and I wish him the luck
