The Oakland Raiders have traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks for a seventh-round draft pick in April’s draft, ESPN.com reported on Monday night.
The Seahawks later confirmed the deal.
The Raiders were expected to release Pryor on Tuesday if a deal wasn’t worked out, but the organization found a last-minute trade partner in Seattle. The 24-year-old quarterback passed for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 11 games for the Raiders last season.
The Raiders added former Houston Texans starter Matt Schaub to the bench in March, accompanying rookie Matt McGloin and veteran Trent Edwards on the QB roster. Pryor adds even more, possibly unnecessarily so, depth.
The 2010 third-round pick took to Twitter to show some love for the Raiders organization after the trade was announced.
The Seahawks now have three quarterbacks on their roster — starter Russell Wilson, Tarvaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels.
