When the Raiders named Terrelle Pryor their Week 17 starting quarterback, his agent didn’t respond by saying he was thrilled to see his client get an opportunity to prove himself. Instead, Pryor’s agent, Jerome Stanley, went off on a rant about how putting Pryor on the field was setting him up to fail.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Pryor has fired Stanley.
Pryor has not yet hired a new agent, but he’ll presumably hire someone who actually wants him to play in 2014. The upcoming season is Pryor’s last under his rookie contract, and so the best way for Pryor to make a lot of money for himself (and his agent) a year from now would be for him to play a lot, and to play well, this year.
