Report: Raiders Trade QB Terrelle Pryor to Seahawks

NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders

This weekend featured a lot of buzz about whether or not the Raiders would cut Pryor if they couldn’t find a trade partner interested in his services.

None of that matters now, as it looks like the mobile QB has found a new home.

It’s interesting to note that last season Seattle traded Matt Flynn to Oakland. And now, Oakland has returned the favor and traded Pryor to Seattle.

Looking at the move from another angle, Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman made an interesting point about Carroll kicking the tires of formerly No.1-rated draft prospects.

It’s now clear the Raiders will be drafting a quarterback in the first two rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft. Should Johnny Manziel be packing his bags for the Bay Area?

And for Seattle, Pryor can serve as a solid backup if he can beat out veteran QB Tarvaris Jackson in training camp. His mobility/elusiveness make him a good fit in the Seahawks’ run-first offense. All the team needs is a game manager, and Pryor can be that if he makes smart decisions with the football and keeps it simple. This acquisition should turn out to be a solid one for the defending Super Bowl champions.

Pro Football Focus’ Pete Damilatis notes Pryor could be a big threat in play-action passing situations.
