Lost in the shuffle is rookie Terrelle Pryor, the quarterback for whom the Raiders gave up a third-round pick in the 2012 draft, via the 2011 supplemental draft. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Raiders have installed specific packages for Pryor, who could make his debut against the Chiefs.
Pryor emerged less than two weeks ago from a five-game suspension. He was added to the active roster on Monday.
Pryor and the team repeatedly have said that he is a quarterback, and that he won’t be moved to a different position. Coach Hue Jackson said in August that Pryor would make his debut in the preseason finale, but Pryor didn’t play. He remains a long-term project at the position, and the arrival of Palmer likely has extended that timetable even deeper into the decade.
