Earlier this offseason, Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor would "likely be traded or released soon." It now appears that will happen by Monday, and it may be via a trade:
Pryor started nine games last season before losing his job to rookie Matt McGloin. He also missed three weeks in the middle of the season with a knee injury.
The third-year pro finished the year with 576 rushing yards but threw 11 interceptions against seven touchdowns to go with 1780 passing yards. He's not even seen as new Raiders QB Matt Schaub's backup. They're content to stick with McGloin in the No. 2 spot.
If the Bengals hadn't signed Jason Campbell already, they'd probably be one of the teams in the running for Pryor. News offensive coordinator Hue Jackson coached Pryor for one season with the Raiders in 2011.
IF the Raiders don't trade Pryor by Monday, they'll likely release him soon thereafter.
