It has been no secret that Pryor was not going to be with the Raiders for long but still general manager Reggie McKenzie was able to land something for him.

Pryor is owed just $705,000 for the 2014 season. There were earlier reports that San Francisco was also showing interest in Pryor.


The Seahawks already have Tarvaris Jackson locked in as the backup to Russell Wilson. If he is to stay around he will do so as the No. 3 quarterback.
