Report: Raiders trade Terrelle Pryor to Seahawks

The Raiders are set to trade Terrelle Pryor to the Seahawks.

Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie made it known this offseason that backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor would "likely be traded or released soon," and reports of a deal coming by today were reported last week.

The Raiders appear to have found a trade partner in the form of the Seattle Seahawks:

McKenzie told reporters at the NFL Annual Meeting last month that Pryor asked to be let go. "Terrelle wants to start so bad," McKenzie said. "I'll visit with him. We'll talk to him."

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.
