According to Marvez, it’s looking like Tuesday could be the day for the Raiders to part ways with Pryor as it marks the start of OTAs.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network has confirmed that the move could happen them.
Over the weekend, Marvez reported that the Raiders would part ways with Pryor on Monday in the event that they couldn’t find a trade partner. However, there has been no news regarding Pryor’s release.
We’ll have more as the news is available.
- Pro Football Talk reported earlier in the week that the Raiders were hoping to trade Pryor before the beginning of the offseason program on Monday.
It’s not a secret that the Raiders have been looking to trade Pryor, but the timeline is noteworthy. It should also be noted that Pryor is only owed $705,000 for next season, which could make him a slightly more attractive option to teams.
Oakland traded for QB Matt Schaub, and appear committed to QB Matt McGloin as their primary backup. They could still use an early pick in the draft on a QB as well. They hold the No.5 pick in the first round.
If the Raiders are unable to trade Pryor, it is likely that he would be released in April, as GM Reggie McKenzie has not made it sound as though Pryor is in the team’s plans.
Pryor, 24, has one year remaining on his rookie and is set to make $705,000 for the 2014 season.
Last year, Pryor appeared in 11 games and completed 57.4 percent of his passes for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
