Teams inquiring about Terrelle Pryor in trade, deadline set

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Monday at the annual owners meetings, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said Terrelle Pryor had requested a trade from the team. The timing of Reggie's statement is rather strategic because the owners meetings are often a great opportunity for discussing such trades and deals as owners, GM's, and coaches are all together in one place.

Now, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports has reported that there have been inquiries into the possibility of a trade for the disgruntled young quarterback.

The Raiders recently acquired Matt Schaub from the Texans in exchange for a sixth round pick in the upcoming draft. Dennis Allen then named Schaub the starter. He then said that Matt McGloin was the primary backup. That alone would be enough to have Pryor wishing to be traded, but word is his request to be traded actually occurred two months ago.

It wasn't too hard to see the writing on the wall for Pryor. The organization has made it clear all off-season they intended on bringing in a veteran and likely made no bones about their preference for McGloin as the primary competition for the starting job. Pryor thinks he can be a starter in this league and wants to go to a team where he feels he has that chance.

As Marvez said, if a trade cannot be agreed upon, Pryor would likely be released in April. It seems clear the Raiders would like to get a deal struck or move on from Pryor before the draft rolls around on May 8.

It is not unusual for a team to make those plans clear so if any team really wants said player, they will have to part with something -- likely a 6th or 7th round pick -- or have to compete with other teams on the open market.
