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.

Unbelievable!  Hey Al - I need a job!  This guy has thrown away more money on unproven and useless players!  Time for The Commish to step in and find another owner for this sad sack franchise.  The silver and black.  The silver is the money and the black is to cover up the cucky.

Great for Terrelle

Now he can afford to buy his own car, tats, "escorts," and greens' fees.  Seriously, as much as I detest all things Buckeye, Pryor deserves an opportunity to practice his chosen profession, and I'm glad things are working out for him.  I just hope THE Ohio State University throws him far enough under the bus that he becomes irate and tells the truth to the NCAA.
 
Just think: all the money he made them, all of the effort he gave, and now he is banned from the program for five years and scapegoated for an entire institution's organized cheating.  Pryor should realize that the "sacred brotherhood" is using him and just come clean to the NCAA office.

Another ghetto flop for the raiders. Great move AL.  I'm sure the gangster raider  fans love this move.
