Seahawks opt to release quarterback Terrelle Pryor
Aug 30, 2014 at 8:07a ET
The former Ohio State star quarterback was released by Seattle on Friday, FOX Sports 1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo and other media report. Pryor himself seemed to offer his own confirmation of the news via Twitter.
Pryor, who was chosen in the third round in the 2011 supplemental draft by the Raiders, threw for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 11 games last year with Oakland. The Raiders traded Pryor to the Seahawks in the offseason for a seventh-round pick in last May's draft.
The St. Louis Rams might have interest in Pryor after losing starting QB Sam Bradford to a season-ending knee injury. The Rams will start Shaun Hill under center but might pick up Pryor as a backup.
