Terrelle Pryor and the Oakland Raiders agreed to a four-year contract, according to Thursday night reports. Pryor was taken in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft on Monday afternoon, with the Oakland Raiders surrendering an equivalent pick in the 2012 NFL Draft as a result. Terms of Pryor's deal have not been announced.
Because of the unique terms of Pryor's eligibility in the supplemental draft, he will be suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season. However, Pryor does have an opportunity to get one game under his belt before his punishment begins.
Pryor will be able to practice immediately after signing and play in the remaining two exhibition games. But he will not be eligible to practice with or play for Oakland during the regular season until the team's sixth game after being handed a five-game suspension by the NFL.
While suspended, Pryor can do individual work with the Raiders' coaching staff, but cannot practice with the team. He also won't be paid for the first five weeks of the season.
