Raiders news: Terrelle Pryor likely done in Oakland
- Updated: March 24, 2014
The Oakland Raiders may be inclined to grant Terrelle Pryor‘s recent request to be traded or released, according to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.
General manager Reggie McKenzie acknowledged on Monday in Orlando there needs to be a conversation between the player and the organization that selected him in the third round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft:
“You know what? Terrelle wants to start so bad. So we’re going to… I’ll visit with him and we’ll talk to him and we’ll move on from there. So we’ll see in the next week or so how he feels about his future and just starting. That’s what he wants to do. So I’m going to talk to him.
The Raiders signed quarterback Matt Schaub last week, and head coach Dennis Allen tabbed him to be the starter. Pryor is at the point in his career where he’s looking for more reps and wants to be the primary signal-caller for a franchise. Given the recent developments within the Raiders’ front office, it appears likely that his future is not with them.
The former Ohio State star has shown flashes of promise in a three-year stint in Oakland that includes 10 starts and 15 games.
He holds the Raiders’ franchise record for the longest touchdown run with a 93-yard scamper in Week 8 of the 2013 season. It was the lengthiest run by any position player, breaking Bo Jackson‘s record of 92 yards set in 1989. It’s conceivable that if he gets an opportunity to play on a regular basis, he could develop into a viable starter in the NFL.
For now, he’s still a Raider, but the clock is ticking.
