Ross signs tender; no word on Pryor

Safety Brandian Ross signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, the fifth player so designated to return to the Raiders with the offseason program set to get underway.

Ross joins tackle Matt McCants, linebacker Kaelin Burnett, running back James Stewart and fullback Jamize Olawale as players who were offered contracts and lacked the time in the league to have negotiating power.

The Raiders begin their offseason program Tuesday, their first gathering as a team since a major overhaul that included the signings of a handful of veteran free agents.

There were no announcements regarding quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who according to a Fox Sports report was going to be either cut or traded Monday.

    Flynn was a vet,didn’t need development.Wilson just got beat out by McGloin.They still started the developmental process with McGloin and seem to be doing a pretty good job.

    I was not one of the criers (especially with Houston), but c’mon. it’s not like he’s gonna miss on every pick of every draft. those odds are impossible. almost as unlikely as not hitting on a single 1st round pick in a decade…

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Seakawks are excited by Pryor just like 49ers were excited with Blame Gabbert… LOL. So excited and in such a fevered bidding war they gave the Raiders the last noncompensatory pick in the draft for him…. LOL

  • r8ter4evr

    Then hate on the old man who brought us 3 Lombardis
    Have at it

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Get it straight Rifflicks, Priest only wanted us to let him be the starter for 3 full years.

  • lefty12

    Because here it was the open competition everyone wanted.There will be no open competition in Seattle.He will be lucky to get scout team reps-if he even makes the team.

  • PlunkforHOF

    I wonder if its compensatory?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Cant trade those… According to PFT it was their last 7th rounder that was NC in other words the last tradable pic in the draft. One last Pic for Pryor…. LOL

  • r8ter4evr

    You put those guys with Belicheck in there rookie years and things would have been different for half of them
    Al was in charge the 1st round pets knew it and ran with it
    No consistency from our ahead coaches
    Think about it they were all top rated picks with talent
    Raise a child in anarchy and you get negative results

  • Rifflicks

    What are the odds Pryor makes the final cut in Seattle?
    I wouldn’t bet on him making it, unless he makes a positional change.

  • http://AdvoCare.com/ Till death do us part

    That’s more than likely what will happen

  • lefty12

    Come on.Saying Al wasn’t himself at the end isn’t hating on him.He was great but lost it.Old man time caught up to him.It happens to EVERYONE.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    They may use him as a wildcat and try to develop him and then let him go at end of season if no progress. He is only costing them 700k.

  • r8ter4evr

    The LOL is from Hawks headquarters

  • lefty12

    Who picked and fired all those HCs?

  • http://thebadtenants.com/ eternal pessimist

    Yep, look at how good they all did when they left the raiders! I can’t even count all those probowls… well, because there weren’t any.

  • PlunkforHOF

    Then we totally scored!

  • r8ter4evr

    My point is as rookies they had a chance after a fat pay day why bother

  • Rifflicks

    the wildcat with Russell there makes no sense…defenses are already looking for Seattle’s QB to run.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    The Hawks are doing a good thing and so are the Raiders. There is such a thing as a win win. They are risking very little to take a look and see how he might fit. For Oakland it would be impossible to have a starting QB with an ego like Pryors be sitting there at 3rd string.

  • PlunkforHOF

    Welcome Mr. Irrelevant!

  • http://thebadtenants.com/ eternal pessimist

    Youre right. All of those guys only wanted to play the lengths of their rookie contracts…

  • lefty12

    Isn’t Mr. Irrelevant the last pick in the draft?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Would not use Wilson as option QB, to valuable to expose to injury but Pryor??? Stronger bigger maybe change of pace.

  • Rifflicks

    The Raiders traded Mr. Inept for Mr. Irrelevant

  • PlunkforHOF

    Did the Hawks win the SB? Is the 7th the last round? Would that not be the last pick in the draft?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Yes but the last absolute pic in the draft is a comp pick that can not be traded. Raiders were lucky to get any compensation. Seattle would have never got him on waivers. Last in line.

  • lefty12

    There are compensation picks allotted for losing FAs.

  • Rifflicks

    unless another team picks up a compensatory pic in the 7th round

  • lefty12

    Actually since I root for Seattle in the NFC(I also root for STL,ARIZ) I almost wish he had gone to the whiners.Many of their fans(?) are already doubting and unhappy with Kap.Watching them grovel over Kap and Pryor would be good comedy.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Wish Pryor the best. For me though it is a lot like Tebow. Terrelle I know you come on this blog sometimes. Please consider being a WR. You are just as big and fast as CJ and you obviously can ball handle. Don’t hang on to the dream too long! My slights were not aimed at you but some of your irrational supporters that blamed coaches and everything else. I know you tried to be as good a QB as possible and worked your -ss off. Ask for and demand honest evaluations from your coaches… Best of Luck.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    what if Gabbert supplants Kap that would be a mess…

  • 2romes

    I been right so far. Total opposite of you.

  • 2romes

    Still waiting for someone to mention who’s starting job is Pryor taking TE or Receiver if he does not play QB.

  • severeraiderz

    Well seeing as how DA and his staff took a top 10 offense to near the bottom of the league and with the QB that we traded a first rounder and a second rounder for. He managed to win just 4 games even though they had the luxury of having said qb for a full offseason program and not coming off of his sofa like his predecessor. Then consider that three of those 4 wins came against the only 2 teams that were worse than us that year and that one of those wins took the opposing team losing it’s starting QB and starting RB and overtime to pull out, I think it becomes clear who is better.

  • Gdog

    Kinda reminds me of Dudley getting a ring with TB… just sayin…

  • Gdog

    100%?

  • Gdog

    He can’t beat out Travaris? What am I missing?

  • Gdog

    He is prolly 2 times better as Travaris. Seattle got a great deal… please.

  • Gdog

    McClain “follows his heart”. He has none though. Oh well… good luck in bankruptcy court in 10 years…

  • Heck Legler

    Not unless he’s really special. I think Robinson might be that special. We’ll know in a few years…

  • severeraiderz

    The jaguars game was under the coaching of Dennis Allen FYI. The Cleveland game against Colt McCoy was the game in which we lost our starting qb and needed Boller to finish. Hue Jackson was and is a better coach than DA, the numbers show it as well as the eyeball test. Im rooting hard for DA to succeed because I don’t want this free agency and the past 2 years to have been a complete waste, but he has yet to show that he has what it takes to be a good head coach in this league
