Raiders' Dennis Allen says team has discussed involving Terrelle Pryor

The Raiders head coach has entertained the possibility of working the dynamic Pryor into the team's offense in some way.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen and his coaching staff have discussed taking a look at second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor, according to Steve Corkran of the San Jose Mercury News.

With the emergence of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick across the bay, Allen could try to follow suit and get the athletic Pryor involved in the Raiders offense in some shape or form. At the moment, it is unclear whether Pryor would take snaps at quarterback or perhaps get involved in some sort of special set that could make the most of the 23-year-old's impressive skill set.

Allen believes that Pryor is still a work in progress, but he likes what he's seen from the dynamic Ohio State alum.

"He's working to get better, and he's working to improve," Allen said of Pryor. "He's gotten better as a quarterback. I don't think any of us feel like he's the finished product, including himself, but he has worked to improve."

Pryor has not been active for any of the Raiders' 11 games in 2012 and has not attempted a pass in an NFL game since being drafted in 2011. The team's current starter, Carson Palmer, is under contract until 2016.
