Seahawks, 49ers both were pursuing Pryor

Getty Images

The Seahawks have secured yet another victory in their ongoing rivalry with the 49ers.

Per multiple sources, Seattle and San Francisco were both pursuing quarterback Terrelle Pryor from the Raiders.  In the end, Seattle won.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Seahawks gave up a seventh-round pick for Pryor.  The 49ers presumably offered less; possibly, a conditional low-round pick in 2015 based on Pryor making the 53-man roster in 2014.

It makes sense that the 49ers and Seahawks, both low on the waiver priority list, would pursue Pryor via trade.  They had little shot at him if he had been waived.

The Seahawks had no shot, absent a trade.  They are at the bottom of the waiver list throughout the offseason and into the first few weeks of the regular season.  If the 49ers were interested, they would have secured Pryor via waivers over Seattle.

    Hey shehawks! Notice you never have won in Minnesota!

  2. thevikesarebest says: Apr 21, 2014 8:38 PM

    In other news the shehawks continue to prove why they are one of the most laughable franchises in the league.

    Thank u seattle!!lol

    How does this clown continue to get work? He can’t even get arrested…wait, that’s a good thing.

  5. louiedogg16 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:45 PM

    Traded for a 7th round pick. Can’t really see the downside to this trade, a lot of teams draft young backup QB’s in later rounds and Pryor is way more dynamic than any of them. T-jack may have been the leagues best backup (with respect to scheme) but Pryor is very exciting as we saw last season.

    If you think Super Bowls and success are funny then I guess you rant as stupid as it seems. Go Hawks

  7. thestrategyexpert says: Apr 21, 2014 8:47 PM

    If the 49ers wanted him maybe they could have suggested a big increase in value like say maybe a 5th Rounder which is way better, as long as the Raiders can see eye to eye on the right value for a player that the 49ers want to move. If they can find a match where the Raiders would have overpaid, then they could have unloaded somebody potentially for a premium by masking it together with the Pryor trade while Oakland is in a deal-making mode.

  8. bennyb82 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:48 PM

    Actually the 49ers were just evaluating Pryor.

  9. axx1 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:48 PM

    So seattle now has 3 qbs better than anything minnisota has

  10. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 21, 2014 8:49 PM

    Wow, either of those destinations aren’t getting Terrelle closer to a starting job. Good pickup for the Hawks at that price. Practically the Mr Irrelevant pick.

  11. lj312chicago says: Apr 21, 2014 8:51 PM

    Attention state of Minnesota…. No one cares what “you people” think..Jared Allen is going to kill POnder or whatever scrub you decide to put back there

  12. agelardi says: Apr 21, 2014 8:51 PM

    Well that sucks for Pryor. Can’t see him learning/developing any more than he already has by continuing to be on the bench.

  13. jayniner says: Apr 21, 2014 8:51 PM

    They may have been both pursuing Pryor.

    But the question is, why?

  14. ukedad says: Apr 21, 2014 8:56 PM

    Now we have 3 QB’s better than Kapernick.

  15. raiderlyfe510 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:56 PM

    The two best teams in football wants TP and we( The Raiders) don’t…..something’s wrong with this picture.

  16. jburk003 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:56 PM

    He won’t even make the 53 man.

    Seattle finally found their scout team Colin Kaepernick for the 2 weeks out of the season Seattle plays SF

  17. osiris33 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:58 PM

    Well now we have our Raepernick clone for the scout team.

  18. lurch61 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:59 PM

    Payback for dumping Flynn on the Raiders…oh and Curry also!

  19. jlmd17 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:00 PM

    Who cares? The guy peaked in high school.

  20. qdog112 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:01 PM

    A bigger, faster version of Johnny Runziel. An absolute steal for a 7th rd pick.

    Further proof that NFL GMs are a bunch of suits, looking back and trying to duplicate what happened last millennium. Also more proof that teams like the Raiders , looking for the next Manning or Brady should be looking for another Russell Wilson or Cam Newton.

    My guess is that Carroll will get him on the field.

  21. wayneflores says: Apr 21, 2014 9:03 PM

    The 49ers screwed this one up. Paperback won’t last a whole season and they would have had time to work with Pryor. He is only making 750k, was worth the chance. Watch Seattle make 49ers look foolish again

  22. tech831 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:05 PM

    As a Raiders fan I think the Seahawks have robbed the Raiders blind! 3 years in s row Curry, Flyyn and then TP for a 7rd pick, cant wait to see the young man work under a R Wilson and the packages they are going to have for him, not like in oakland were that clown DA never gave a fair shot, you may say they did but, not even T Brady would of made alive with that terrible o line.

  23. whealy86 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:08 PM

    Gabbert must be even worse then we all thought….

  24. raiderfan77 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:09 PM

    Probably best for both sides. He’s a good guy and we wish him well. He was 3rd on the depth chart as a QB in Oakland, so it’s a fresh start for him and a draft pick for us. Nice move by Reggie picking up a pick when most thought we wouldn’t get anything.

  25. fordmandalay says: Apr 21, 2014 9:16 PM

    Does this remind anyone else of Tom Sawyer pretending how great it was to be painting a fence, just so he could fool the other kids into doing it for him?

  26. radrntn says: Apr 21, 2014 9:17 PM

    and another day goes by, where I am left scratching my head……AGAIN!

    Go Raiders, (I know) G0 Reggie (I hope)

  27. thefiesty1 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:19 PM

    49r’s should of stayed with McCoy.

  28. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 21, 2014 9:20 PM

    All the teams lining up to spend a first or second round pick on the likes of Bortles and Bridgewater, and none willing to give up a seventh rounder for Pryor? Nuts.

  29. cakesw says: Apr 21, 2014 9:29 PM

    The 49ers couldn’t have wanted him.

    The Seahawks basically offered the Mr. Irrelevant pick for him…

    Any other draft pick in the draft was going to be better.

  30. realfootballfan says: Apr 21, 2014 9:37 PM

    The Raiders’ “braintrust” is so much smarter than these teams. They got rid of Pryor who won as many games as the guys they cleared him out for left on the roster put together last year. Think about that Raider fans and then wonder if its him or if its your team.

  31. unbridledsexy says: Apr 21, 2014 9:42 PM

    And a quarter back. Nearly forgot that one.

  32. 12hawksfan1976 says: Apr 21, 2014 9:49 PM

    And, for the record, Vikings fans, you are 5-8 all-time against the Seahawks since 1976. That includes two losses at home (to only three home wins). And you are a dreadful 2-6 in Seattle.


  33. raider8er says: Apr 21, 2014 9:52 PM

    What is with the Vikings fans on this site? Kray kray.

    So long TP! You were good for a few highlights, something JaMarcus didn’t manage.

  34. oreo51 says: Apr 21, 2014 10:21 PM

    Pryor may learn a few things sitting in the same QB room with Russell Wilson and Darrell Bevell.

  35. edavidberg says: Apr 21, 2014 10:27 PM

    Pryor is a guy worth having, but Riaders have two guys they like better than him. Not enough reps to bring him along, plus he would be a distraction.

    He would have been a perfect backup for Kapernick in San Fran the way he can run the read option.

  36. thefiesty1 says: Apr 21, 2014 10:42 PM

    He’ll never see the field in Seattle.

  37. nomoreseasontix says: Apr 21, 2014 10:55 PM

    No risk acquisition of a camp body.
    Nothing more. See TO. He’ll be in the final cut-down to 53.
    He had maybe 20 plays out of the playbook he could run last year. And that included bootlegs. After 3 years on an NFL squad.

    The guy doesn’t have the capacity or bandwidth to be an NFL quarterback. He’s basically just a big guy who can run. You can’t just run around and chuck it out there in the NFL. Sandlot stuff doesn’t work.

  38. bert1913 says: Apr 21, 2014 11:07 PM

    the santa clara 49ers finish second to the seahawks again

  39. maestro1899 says: Apr 21, 2014 11:36 PM

    Carolina should have went for him, especially with the Cam injury. He would have made a good backup for Cam. They could run the same offense.

  40. Dogsweat says: Apr 22, 2014 2:11 AM

    And now the 49ers will be scouting the return of Ja marcus Russell.

    The comeback tour starts this season.

  41. zorn2largent says: Apr 22, 2014 2:14 AM

    Turn this guy into a tight end. Problem solved. We have a scout team QB and a fast TE to open up the field.

  42. rainponcho87 says: Apr 22, 2014 3:51 AM

    49ers played that one well: show fake interest in anyone the Seahawks want, drive the price up.

  43. NFLisnotreality says: Apr 22, 2014 6:21 AM

    Pryor = Mr. Irrelevant 2014

  44. jimmyt says: Apr 22, 2014 7:05 AM

    Niners are a funny bunch.

  45. officialgame says: Apr 22, 2014 7:07 AM

    Nobody wanted to give up a pick for Desean Jackson and his 83 catches? SF wanted Pryor and they didn’t see fit to part with even one of their 12 picks? More then half of the players drafted get cut within a year which really makes me wonder what these GM’s are thinking?

  46. mikeinfected says: Apr 22, 2014 8:26 AM

    considering they have three higher seventh round picks The Niners couldn’t have been that interested.

    Not sure this was ever much of a battle to have “won”.

  47. dmarado says: Apr 22, 2014 8:43 AM

    Like it or not, Pryor played QB in the NFL and thus is an NFL QB. Heck, he probably won more games than guys like Weeden and Gabbert. Also, there are probably some things he even does better than Wilson, so having him line up against the Seattle defense could challenge them more in practice. Good move for the Seahawks and I can’t believe people call them “laughable” after they just won the Super Bowl. As a Browns’ fan, oh to be as laughable.

  48. huberb2014 says: Apr 22, 2014 9:40 AM

    who says Pryor will only be a QB in Seattle? Seattle needs decent QB backups, another arm in camp. Pryor can be morphed into a joker TE or WR given his athletic ability. Everyone knows he is not a starting QB, but the kid has talent.

  49. campcouch says: Apr 22, 2014 10:06 AM

    Either way,he escaped from Oakland.

  50. thunderstruck24 says: Apr 22, 2014 10:22 AM

    This no sense… If the 49ers were interested too why would n’t the Raiders have traded with them? They obviously couldn’t have offered worse than the last pick in the draft. I call BS

  51. golfnutt67 says: Apr 22, 2014 10:42 AM

    All you Hawks fans can boast what at great move this is………..I hope we actually get to see this clown play for you this year (regular season). then your tune will change.

  52. scmems07 says: Apr 22, 2014 11:09 AM

    and the niner’s continue to look for a new starting qb.

  53. ndrick731 says: Apr 23, 2014 1:50 PM

    All this fighting over a guy who doesn’t even belong in the league. At least as a QB.
