Terrelle Pryor is heading to Seattle.

The Raiders traded the 6-foot-5, 211-pound quarterback to the Seahawks, FOX Sports NFL insider Alex Marvez has confirmed. Pro Football Talk first reported the news. The Seahawks surrendered a seventh-round pick for Pryor, according to multiple reports.

Pryor, who was a third-round pick in the 2011 supplemental draft, had one year left on his rookie deal worth $765,000.

The Raiders, who were set to begin offseason training activities, were likely to release Pryor if they didn’t get a deal done. Now, Pryor will compete with quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to back up Russell Wilson.
