The Oakland Raiders are having problems finding value for quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor had asked to be let go a few weeks ago after the Raiders had acquired Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans, but, so far, the Raiders have not made any moves in letting go of the young quarterback.
It was reported on Monday on the Fansided.com web page that the Raiders can’t find a customer for Pryor. It seems like the quarterback market is very low this offseason, and Pryor is having a hard time with the situation.
When the Oakland Raiders traded for Matt Schaub, and Coach Dennis Allen announced that Schaub was going to be the starter, it was apparent that Terrelle Pryor was going to be let go, especially with Matt McGloin fitting the card as a pocket passer better than Pryor, which is what the Raiders seem to be looking for in a QB.
Pryor knowing that his starting position is lost with the Raiders has asked to be let go. However, general manager Reggie McKenzie will try to squeeze as much as he can from the talented young quarterback.
On the other hand, no team has come forward with an interest on Pryor. The market for quarterbacks is hurting this season, as most good quarterbacks are already in place with their respective teams.
The best deals out there were pretty much Michael Vick and Matt Schaub. Both were signed to a team—Vick going to the New York Jets and Schaub signed with Oakland.
Also, the other market is through the draft coming in May and many teams are already eyeballing the new class. So, at best, Pryor will most likely just be hired as a backup, if any luck comes his way.
This is sad news to hear when a talented quarterback like Terrelle Pryor has a hard time finding a job. On the other hand, the NFL is a very tough market, and that is just the way things are with the business of football.
If Terrelle Pryor stays with the Oakland Raiders, he will most likely end up with the practice squad, unless he proves himself again in camp and preseason to gain, at least, the backup role.
