Raiders sign Terrelle Pryor to four-year deal

Terrelle Pryor's been one of the most talked-about players in the NFL this offseason, thanks to his awkward status with the NFL for the supplemental draft and the inevitable eventual decision by the Raiders to snare him in the third round.

Now it appears he's finally a member of an NFL franchise, as he's in California with the team and set to sign a four-year deal with Oakland.

"We expect him to sign tonight," Raiders exec John Herrera said, via the Associated Press.

Per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the contract includes a $586,000 signing bonus and base salaries of $375,000, $485,000, $595,000 and $645,000 in each of the respective years. The 2011 number does not include the amount (more than $100,000) that Pryor will lose because of the five-game suspension he has to serve to start the year.

Pryor will be eligible to begin practicing with the team Friday, pending his signature on Thursday of course, and could conceivably play with the team in its final preseason on September 2 against the Seahawks.

As much as I disrespect him from what he did to Ohio State this is a great deal for both the Raiders and him. Only 2 mil over 4years. I he sizzles then he will get big money in 4 years. This is a smart move for the Raiders.

  Congratulations you won the lottery!  Spend the money very smartly, because it is the only contract in the NFL you will ever sign.  Unless you restructure for less money.  2 years on the practice squad, than 2 years trying to make him a wide out, than most likely carnival or rehab.  Good luck with this one! lol

Work it like the Eagles?  You actually need the right personnel and the right system to work it like the Eagles.  Worst case scenario is that you lose a 3rd rounder and more skepticism of the Raiders ability to draft the right players for the right value.

Great. He has been drafted and signed. Can we now not talk about him again until he actually does something in the NFL?

Like it or not this move is VERY cheap and could have a huge upside. Worst case scenario, we work it lke the Eagles. Campbell sits a couple games for an ankle or concussion, Terrelle looks decent, and in three years we get a first for him. He will not see the field anytime soon for this price, so relax my anxious Raider brethren. IF he has something to offer, he will have a long time to learn how to offer it.
