Rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor will appeal his five-game suspension handed down by commissioner Roger Goodell, according to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer.
No word on when that appeal will take place. The Raiders are currently carrying only two quarterbacks with the release of Trent Edwards Saturday.
Of the Raiders cuts Saturday, one has landed on his feet. Free safety Stevie Brown said on his Twitter account, “goodbye Oakland, hello Carolina.”
Brown played in more than nine games last season so he is not eligible for the practice squad, so the assumption is he is on the 53-man roster.
The Raiders practice at 12:30 p.m. today in Alameda, with media availability to following practice. Practice squad members could trickle back into the facility today, but chances are the Raiders won’t make any announcements until it is complete.
