Terrelle Pryor

We’ve long awaited a resolution between disgruntled quarterback Terrelle Pryor and the Oakland Raiders, and a deadline has been placed on the issue.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Raiders hope to trade Pryor before the start of the team’s offseason program on Monday. Otherwise, he’s expected to be released.

Pryor has fallen to third on the depth chart behind newly acquired Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin, and the team may still select a quarterback in May’s draft. Pryor has one year and $705,000 remaining on his contract, which shouldn’t be an issue for interested clubs. However, over the last month Pryor has generated little interest on the trade market.

Not only is Pryor available, but perhaps so is teammate Denarius Moore.

Rotoworld’s Evan Silva suggests the Raiders — who have only six draft picks and more holes to fill — could dangle the speedy wide receiver in exchange for more picks.

Moore will be a free agent after the coming season, while the Raiders could be eyeing Sammy Watkins with the fifth overall pick in the draft. The team also signed veteran James Jones and has young talent in the form of Andre Holmes and Rod Streater, making Moore all the more expendable.

Also, don’t count out the New York Giants trading away 2013 fourth-round pick quarterback Ryan Nassib.

With the signing of Josh Freeman on Wednesday, the Giants have three quarterbacks backing up Eli Manning, who the team reportedly believes in on the decline. Freeman has more game experience than Nassib, who failed to overtake journeyman Curtis Painter for the No. 2 job.

NJ.com suggests Nassib could be dealt – perhaps for draft picks — to help fill other needs up and down the roster.

Neither Ryan Mallet or Kirk Cousins garnered too much interest on the open market, so it’s hard to believe Nassib — who has never started an NFL game — would command much attention.
