After the Raiders traded for Matt Schaub back in March, Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor figured his days in Oakland were done, so he asked the team to trade him. Apparently, the Raiders are trying to do just that and they're trying to do it right now. 

According to ProFootballTalk, the Raiders are hoping to trade Pryor by the time their offseason program begins, which would mean getting rid of him by April 22. If the Raiders can't find a trading partner, it's not clear if they'll cut Pryor or keep him on the roster to serve as the No. 3 quarterback behind Schaub and Matt McGloin

There's no guarantee the Raiders will find anyone to trade with either, the team has been looking to get rid of Pryor since at least February and so far, they've found no takers. 

Pryor started nine games for Oakland in 2013 and the Raiders went 3-6 in those starts. The 24-year-old quarterback showed off his athleticism several times last season, including in Week 8 against the Steelers when he set NFL record for the longest touchdown run by a quarterback with a 93-yard score, but the Raiders never really seemed to see Pryor as their quarterback of the future. 

The former Ohio State quarterback finished 2013 with 1,798 passing yards and seven touchdown passes, but he also threw 11 interceptions.
