Seahawks QB Terrelle Pryor isn't interested in learning a new position.
"I don’t know how to catch," Pryor said. "I don’t know how to run the ball as a running back. I’ve been a quarterback my whole life." At 6-foot-4, 233 pounds with 4.4 wheels, Pryor is one of the most imposing athletes in the entire NFL, but too rudimentary of a passer to ever be a starting quarterback. Trying out for a "slash" role would likely increase his 53-man roster odds, but like Tim Tebow, Pryor wants to stick at the only position he's ever known. Were Pryor to be cut loose by the world-champion Seahawks, someone else would likely pounce on him as a reserve. Jun 19 - 10:46 PM

ESPN's Jim Trotter says Terrelle Pryor has a "legit shot" to win Seattle's backup quarterback job.

Pryor is competing with Darrell Bevell favorite Tarvaris Jackson. The ex-Raider obviously has the athleticism edge (as he does on just about every quarterback in the league), but he's going to have to show drastic improvement as a pocket passer to earn the gig. In 11 appearances last season, Pryor completed just 57.4 percent of his passes and threw seven touchdowns against 11 interceptions.

GM John Schneider said Terrelle Pryor is exclusively learning the quarterback position right now.

Pryor is essentially competing with B.J. Daniels for the third-string job as he's highly unlikely to beat out backup Tarvaris Jackson. In reality, Schneider saw the chance to get an athletic freak and developmental prospect in exchange for a seventh-round pick and pounced. He previously didn't rule out using Pryor in a "slash" role on Sundays.

Seahawks GM John Schneider didn't rule out using Terrelle Pryor in a "slash" role.

The Seahawks gave up a mere seventh-round pick to acquire an athletic specimen that goes 6'4/233 and ran a 4.38 at his 2011 Pro Day. It'll be up to the coaches to figure out how to use Pryor. They know he's not going to climb any higher than third on the quarterback depth chart.
Apr 23 - 8:08 AM

Seahawks acquired QB Terrelle Pryor from the Raiders for a seventh-round draft pick.

The 49ers were also trying to acquire Pryor. GM Reggie McKenzie did well to get something after acknowledging Pryor wasn't going to be on the team. With Pryor under contract for a meager $705,000 in 2014, he wasn't going to make it to Seattle on waivers, so they had to trade for him if they wanted him. If Pryor is going to stick in Seattle, he's going to have to be kept as the No. 3 quarterback. Tarvaris Jackson is locked in as Russell Wilson's top backup on a fully guaranteed deal. Pryor will compete with B.J. Daniels for No. 3 duties.

The Raiders offseason program begins on Tuesday.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reported over the weekend that Terrelle Pryor would likely be waived by Monday if the Raiders couldn't find a trade partner, but Tuesday is the likelier date for the transaction. The team doesn't want Pryor getting hurt at the club facility. Look for the move to happen tomorrow.
Apr 21 - 5:39 PM

Fox Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Raiders will waive Terrelle Pryor on Monday if they are unable to trade him this weekend.

Pryor only has one year and $705,000 left on his rookie contract, so there is a chance someone gives up a late-round pick for him. It is more likely he ends up being cut on Monday. Pryor only completed 57.4 of his passes and threw seven touchdowns to 11 interceptions in nine starts last season. If cut, Pryor has a good shot to latch on with another team as a project/camp quarterback.
Apr 19 - 1:03 PM

Profootballtalk reports the Raiders will try to trade Terrelle Pryor by Monday.

Both CSN Bay Area and FOX Sports reported Pryor was on the block last month. The Raiders' offseason program begins on Monday, and they don't want the distraction of Pryor. If GM Reggie McKenzie can't find a trade partner, he's fully expected to waive Pryor. He has one year left on his deal at a meager $705,000.
Apr 16 - 4:25 PM

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Raiders have received "trade feelers" for Terrelle Pryor.

Marvez also confirms Pryor will be released in April if a trade can't be worked out. Due an eminently reasonable $705,000 in the final year of his rookie contract, Pryor might actually fetch something in a trade, but GM Reggie McKenzie damaged his leverage when he all but admitted Pryor won't be back with the team in 2014.
Mar 27 - 6:23 PM

CSN Bay Area reports the Raiders are expected to waive or trade Terrelle Pryor by April 21.

That's the day when the Raiders' offseason program begins. GM Reggie McKenzie would like to get something in return for Pryor, but he's already said Pryor won't be back therefore relinquishing any leverage McKenzie may have had. Oakland doesn't want Pryor to cause a distraction with the team come OTAs. Pryor is due a reasonable $705,000 in 2014 and would get claimed on waivers.
Mar 26 - 1:23 PM

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie confirmed at Monday's league meetings in Orlando that Terrelle Pryor will "likely be traded or released soon."

Pryor isn't yet a vested veteran, so he'd actually go on waivers as opposed to being outright released. "Terrelle wants to start so bad," McKenzie said. "So we’re going to ... I’ll visit with him and we’ll talk to him and we’ll move on from there." All leverage Oakland previously may have had regarding a Pryor trade is officially kaput. Expect Pryor to be waived before May's draft.
Mar 24 - 4:00 PM

A league source tells Profootballtalk.com that Terrelle Pryor requested a trade during January's Senior Bowl.

So FOX Sports' report of Pryor's trade demand isn't breaking news inside the NFL. Pryor in January "had decided that the time had come" to ask out of Oakland, after being demoted on the depth chart in favor of Matt McGloin. PFT suggests the Browns as a possible suitor. Pryor turns 25 in June. He has a cheap salary and dual-threat talents, and should generate light interest.
Mar 24 - 3:32 PM

A source tells FOX Sports that Terrelle Pryor has asked for a trade.

GM Reggie McKenzie, strangely giddy following the Matt Schaub trade, has already informed Pryor that he isn't under consideration to start in Oakland. That didn't sit well. McKenzie confirmed the Raiders will comply to the request by shopping Pryor and then likely releasing him if no partners are found. The raw athlete will attract developmental attention from forward-thinking teams because he can move the chains with his legs.
Mar 24 - 12:52 PM

GM Reggie McKenzie essentially confirmed that his starting quarterback isn't on the roster yet.

The Raiders are throwing in the towel on Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin as starting options. "Do I have an idea? I have a really good idea," McKenzie said when asked if he knows who will start Week 1. "The bottom line still is the guy's got to come in and compete, show the team, his teammates, the staff, that he can do it." It's been reported that the Raiders' top choice is Matt Schaub, a declining 32-year-old that got benched in favor of Case Keenum last season.
Mar 20 - 10:58 AM

The Contra Costa Times believes the Raiders will "listen to offers" for Terrelle Pryor.

It's just reporter Steve Corkran's speculation, but it's far from a surprise. CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair recently opined that Pryor isn't a lock for a 2014 roster spot, and that it's "very clear (he) doesn't have a future as a quarterback (in Oakland)." Pryor was inconsistent — to put it kindly — last season, but it's hard to see the upside in offloading him for a late-round pick. GM Reggie McKenzie has proven to be a dodgy drafter, and utterly incapable of evaluating quarterbacks. He needs to be adding experienced signal callers, not subtracting them.
