Terrelle Goes To Oakland

August 22nd 2011 21:44
The Oakland Raiders have selected Terrelle Pryor in the NFL's supplemental draft. They used a third round pick in order to get Pryor. Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said that his client was excited about going into the third round after waiting until last Thursday to find out he'd even be eligible for the draft and not working out for teams until Saturday. Pryor had immediately headed to the Bay Area after being drafted the Raiders, and Rosenhaus hoped to finalize a contract as soon as possible to get Pryor on the practice field. Based on the rookie scale used to sign picks from the April's draft, Pryor would be expected to receive a four year deal at $2.36 million, including a $591,000 signing bonus. A Raiders source told ESPN's, John Clayton, that the team is looking at Pryor more of a receiver than a quarterback. Pryor will be able to practice with the Raiders immediately after signing and play in the last two preseason games. He will not be able to practice with the Raiders in the regular season until the sixth game.

When Pryor was allowed in the Monday's draft, Roger Goodell handed him a five game suspension, which is the same amount of games that he would have received if he stayed at Ohio State. At the workout, Pryor ran a 4.36 in the 40, so Oakland picking Terrelle wasn't that much of a surprise. The owner, Al Davis covets size and speed. Drew Rosenhaus said, “We all know how Al Davis likes big players who can run and Terrelle brings a dimension of size and speed that's unique to the quarterback position.” Now with the addition of Terrelle Pryor, the Raiders are without picks in the second, third, and fourth rounds next year. The Raiders traded the 2012 second round pick along with a 2011 seventh round selection for third and fourth round picks this past draft to take offensive lineman, Joe Barksdale, and running back, Taiwan Jones.

Typical Raiders move. I love Al Davis but the game has passed him by.
