Terrelle Pryor Reportedly To Sign Four Year, $2.36 Million Deal With Raiders

Terrelle Pryor apparently hasn't wasted anytime in getting a contract secured with the Oakland Raiders. Then again, things tend to happen fast when Drew Rosenhaus is your agent.

Multiple sources (John Clayton of ESPNSteve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times) report that Pryor will sign to a four year deal with the Oakland Raiders, netting him $2.36 million with a $375,000 base salary in 2011 and a $591,000 singing bonus. Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post reports that this year's salary will be docked $110k because of his five-game suspension issued by the NFL.

Even if it is pretty much the minimum contract, it seems a little excessive for someone who might not ever see a real professional snap. Still, compared to the monstrosity of the JaMarcus Russell contract, this doesn't seem so bad. Pryor is clearly a project, and he'll need a lot of time to develop before he's ready to be a great quarterback. Or quarterback. Or anything NFL-worthy.

There are no provisions written into the contract for extra tattoos.
