Seahawks Acquire Pryor from Oakland

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(ALAMEDA, Calif.) -- The Seattle Seahawks acquired quarterback Terrelle Pryor in a trade from the Oakland Raiders on Monday for a seventh round pick in the upcoming draft.

Pryor was the last draft pick of the late Oakland owner Al Davis and is set to make $705,000 in 2014.

Pryor asked to be traded after the season when he lost the starting job to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin late in 2013. The Raiders also made a move this offseason to bring in Matt Schaub, the former Houston Texans signal caller, to be the starter this year.

A third round pick in the 2011 supplemental draft, Pryor saw limited action in his first two seasons before winning the job outright over Matt Flynn prior to last year. In his first four starts, Pryor threw for 845 yards and four touchdowns while completing 68.1 percent of his passes.

However, a knee injury suffered during a loss to the New York Giants began his downfall. Pryor would throw just one touchdown while tossing eight interceptions in the next four games before McGloin took over.

Pryor now joins the reigning Super Bowl Champions as a backup to Russell Wilson. He will have to compete for that job as well with both Tavaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels.
