The Oakland Raiders are hoping to resolve the status of quarterback Terrelle Pryor by Monday.

Pryor’s chances of starting in Oakland went by the wayside when the Raiders acquired Matt Schaub from Houston. Now he sits third on the depth chart behind Schaub and Matt McGloin who is the more traditional pocket passer the Raiders desire.

The Raiders have been trying to unload Pryor since they acquired Schaub but there are no known trade partners.


Pryor has one year left on his current deal which would pay him $705,000. Pryor’s biggest assets are his speed and ability plays out of nothing.


Pryor appeared in 11 games last season completing 57.4-percent of his passes for 1,798 yards while throwing seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also averaged 6.9 yards on 83 rushes and added two touchdowns on the ground.
