Terrelle Pryor Expected To Sign Oakland Raiders Contract Soon

The Oakland Raiders selected former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor in the third round of the 2011 NFL supplemental draft officially making him a member of Raider Nation. 

Actually, it's not official until he signs his contract but, according to NFL Network, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expects that to happen soon. Pryor is hopping on a plane to Oakland where he is indeed expected to sign his contract Monday evening.

Per John Clayton of ESPN, Pryor should receive a contract in the neighborhood of four years, $2.36 million with a $591,000 signing bonus. 

The NFL changed the way rookies are paid so the total payout is a little more structured. There can still be disagreements on how much guaranteed money is involved but, for the most part, Pryor should know what the basic parameters of his contract looks like.

Just because Pryor signs with the Raiders doesn't mean he'll be their Week 1 starter. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ruled that Pryor would be ineligible to practice or play in the first five weeks of the season. Still, he'll soon be a Raider.
