Raiders trade Terrelle Pryor to Seahawks


UPDATE: Jay Glazer confirms the Raiders receive a late-round pick from the Seahawks in return. It was a seventh-round pick, which is the last pick that was able to be traded in this year’s draft.

**********

It has finally happened. After days of speculation and news that the Oakland Raiders were set to release quarterback Terrelle Pryor if they did not find a trading partner, the team has moved on.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported on Monday night that the Raiders have traded Pryor to the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks.

There is no word on what compensation was heading back to the Raiders, but it will likely be for a conditional  late-round pick.

In Seattle, there is no doubt that Pryor will serve in the back up role, but he will also have time to grow under an incredible coaching staff that Pete Carroll has assembled. As a side note, the addition of Pryor means that Russell Wilson now has two quarterbacks on the roster that make more money than he does.

For the Raiders, they can now move forward with Matt Schaub as their unquestioned starter and potentially add a rookie early in the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Wow.

    Hallelujah finally got no talent pyror off our team

    Well obviously either TP was lying to Reggie or Reggie was lying to us. Because he’s definitely not going to Seattle to be a starter. Its a win for both parties. TP wants to be on a relevant team and we want guys who want to be a part of this teams building process. Same reason Houston and Valdheer are no longer here. Raider Nation!

    Can’t believe we got anything for him. Hopefully the Seahawks can get him to play a different position

      Never thought of that. I did see they needed a water boy.

        Ouch!

    Now Pete Carroll has TWo mobile QB’s on his roster. it will be interesting to see what he can do in pre-season, and make the roster.

      He won’t even take snaps – he’ll be either a TE or WR. Pete will make that happen.

  • 1coolguy

    @ 6’4″, 235 and a sub-4.4 40, he’ll be either a WR or TE. Pete knows best.

    I don’t understand this move by the Seahawks. A 7th Round pick? I mean honestly this seems so silly to me.
