The Oakland Raiders traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks on April 21 for a seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Oakland Raiders traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks on April 21. 

This was confirmed by Clare Farnsworth of the Seahawks' official website

"The Seahawks added to the competition at the quarterback position on Monday by acquiring Terrelle Pryor in a trade with the Oakland Raiders for a seventh-round pick in next month's NFL Draft. 

"With the Seahawks, Pryor steps into a situation where third-year QB Russell Wilson is the established starter and the coaches feel that backup Tarvaris Jackson was better in his second stint with the team last season than he was when he was the starter in 2011 (he spent the 2012 season with the Buffalo Bills). 

"B.J. Daniels was signed to a future contract in February after splittng time between the active roster (six games) and practice squad last season, when he was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers in October." 

In spite of having both Russell and Jackson at quarterback, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said in a team statement (via The Seattle Times) that Pryor's upside was too much to pass up on should the opportunity to acquire him arise. 

Schneider said,"Terrelle is an incredibly explosive athlete and we're excited for him to come in and compete."

The same Seattle Times update also states the team may be inclined to try the 6'4", 233-pound Pryor at wide receiver or even tight end. 

Pryor earned a base salary of $705,000 last season. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014 campaign, The Seattle Times report adds.  

With the trade, Pryor's desire to leave the Raiders has now been fulfilled. He wanted a change of scenery after Oakland went with Matt McGloin as its new starter, per ESPN. 

After the Raiders signed former Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on March 23, it seemed Pryor's days in Oakland were numbered. 

According to The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Stephen Cohen, Pryor "became only the second true freshman to start at quarterback for Ohio State, where he led the Buckeyes to two Big Ten championships and three BCS bowl games in his three years as a starter."

Pryor's entry into the pro ranks was marred by controversy -- he was one of five players suspended for the first five games of the 2011 NCAA season for allegedly receving improper benefits, specifically tattoos, notes The Seattle Times article. 

Pryor did not serve his suspension. Instead, he declared for the NFL Supplemental Draft where he was selected in the third round by Oakland. 

 

In 14 games for the Raiders in 2012 and 2013, the 24-year-old Pryor threw for 1,953 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions for a passer rating of 69.3. He also rushed for a total of 627 yards and three touchdowns, per ESPN stats

ESPN's Terry Blount reports the Seahawks' NFC West rivals, the San Francisco 49ers, were also interested in signing Pryor.
