McKenzie: Pryor Will Compete for Raiders Starting Job

Terrelle Pryor will have a chance to compete for the Raiders’ starting quarterback job next season, GM Reggie McKenzie told SiriusXM NFL Radio.

In his only career start, Pryor threw for 150 yards, completing 13/28 passing attempts for two touchdowns. He also ran for 49 yards and a touchdown in a 24-21 loss to San Diego.

Pryor will be competing with the veteran Carson Palmer, who had his season derailed late in 2012 due to broken ribs and a bruised lung. Palmer has been the Raiders’ starter for the past two seasons.

Although it seems unlikely that he will replace Palmer, it is worth noting because McKenzie seems to be referring to Pryor as the Raiders’ quarterback of the future.
