Former Buckeye Pryor traded to Seahawks

ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders have traded away the final player drafted by late owner Al Davis.

Oakland dealt quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday for a seventh-round pick in next month's draft.

The Raiders fulfilled Pryor's wish to be traded a day before the start of their offseason program. Pryor, who played at Ohio State, had asked to be dealt after the season when he lost his starting job to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin, and the Raiders made the move after acquiring Matt Schaub from Houston to be the starter.

The Raiders took Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft in 2011, less than two months before Davis died.

Pryor completed 156 of 272 passes for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions, with a passer rating of 69.1 last year. He also rushed for 576 yards on 83 carries, but was sacked 31 times. He will compete with Tarvaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels for the backup job to Russell Wilson in Seattle.
