Late Monday night, the news came through the wire that the Oakland Raiders were finally able to find a trade partner for quarterback Terrelle Pryor as he will now be headed off to Seattle to join the world champion Seahawks for a late-round draft pick.

Not long after the announcement, it was also learned that there was a second team, in addition to the champs, that had some serious discussions with the Raiders about Pryor, and as it turns out, it was there friends across the bay, the San Francisco 49ers.

This really shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise, seeing as Pryor would be a more than suitable back up to Colin Kaepernick in the Niners offense, given the way that he plays the position.

But in the end, it was Pete Carroll and the Seahawks that were able to come away with his services, as he’ll now sit behind Russell Wilson for the time being.
