The Raiders have already said publicly that quarterback Terrelle Pryor won't be on their team this season. So, why haven't they just cut the cord already? Well, despite erasing all possible leverage through their words, the Raiders are still trying to trade Pryor for something. If they are unsuccessful in doing so over the next 48 hours, the Raiders will finally release him. That's what Alex Marvez of FOX Sports 1 reported Saturday. Monday is when the Raiders open their offseason program.
Matt Schaub is locked in as Oakland's starting QB, and Matt McGloin is his backup right now. Pryor is in the final year of his contract and is owed just $705,000, but I can't imagine that a team is clamoring for his services so much so that it would give up something of value to get him. Pryor will find another place to play, no doubt. He is only 24 years old and is a special athlete even if he isn't a competent NFL quarterback. But I would be surprised if a trade is swung before Monday's self-imposed deadline.
Fantasy value? Uh, not right now.
