It looks like the quarterback competition in Oakland just got another contender. The Raiders used a third-round pick in the NFL’s supplemental draft to select former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
He won’t be eligible to practice with or play for Oakland until the team’s sixth game of the season. He’ll have to sit out a five-game suspension by Commissioner Roger Goodell for his role in the team’s memorabilia-for-cash scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job.
Pryor headed to Oakland immediately and will be able to work out with the team as soon as he signs a contract. He can play in the team’s two remaining exhibition games, but then won’t be able to practice or play with the team until the sixth week of the season.
This past Sunday the Sports Kings talked with Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports about the developing storylines within the NFL including Terrelle Pryor vs. Cam Newton.
