This move will cost the Raiders their third-round pick in 2012 which is a bit of an issue now that they’ll be without a pick in the second through the fourth rounds.
Seventeen different teams should up for Pryor’s workout this weekend so there was obviously going to be plenty of interest in him today.
Pryor mentioned that he wasn’t going to appeal the leagues decision to suspend him five games and added that he’s willing to play whatever position the team wants him to.
Now that he’s going to be joining the Raiders, there’s actually a chance that they could keep him at quarterback. Jason Campbell is going to be a free agent and the team doesn’t have another developmental prospect on their roster. Many draft experts believe that he is going to have to move to wide receivers so there’s a better shot that he’s catching passing in the NFL rather than throwing them.
