Translation: He'll be released if -- and when -- a trade partner can't be found.

General manager Reggie McKenzie told reporters last month at the NFL Annual Meeting that Pryor asked to be let go after the Raiders traded for Matt Schaub. "Terrelle wants to start so bad," McKenzie said in March. "I'll visit with him. We'll talk to him."

Pryor isn't even seen as Schaub's backup. The Raiders are content to roll with Matt McGloin in the No. 2 spot, and don't be surprised to see Oakland grab a quarterback of the future in May's draft.

As for Pryor, he'll find a new home. His starting days might be over, but he's an athletically gifted player who looms as an asset for a creative play-caller in the right subpackage.
