The following message arrived from the Raiders via Twitter at 11 p.m.:
QB Terrelle Pryor signs his contract. He will be on the field in Napa tomorrow morning.
Here’s a link. Even has Pryor signing his contract, assuming it’s not a prop or a Saints-Raiders press release.
It was also announced on the Raiders Web site.
Amazing how that worked out. Pryor signs at a point right when camp is breaking up, allowing Camp Hue to focus on the team without a sideshow. When Pryor really gets cranking in practice so the coaching staff can see what he’s got, practice will be closed to the media.
Good call, actually. In terms of P.R. strategy and media perception, the best and most shrewd Raider camp I can remember . . .
