Oakland Raiders coordinator Greg Olson thinks it's important to see what young QB Terrelle Pryor can do in the offseason.
"If you have a guy that can stay there and play 65 plays a game and do those things and also be able to throw the ball from point A to point B accurately, if he possesses those skills as well, then you certainly have something," Olson told the Associated Press, via ESPN.com.
"So that's what we'll have to find out with Terrelle Pryor. We know what kind of an athlete he is. We need to find out what kind of decision maker he is, and we need to find out if he's a guy that can also sit in the pocket and deliver the ball from point A to point B accurately and on time and making the right decisions."
Olson wants to know if he has a guy that can be what's all the rage right now in the NFL, a running/passing QB in the mold of Colin Kaepernick or Robert Griffin III.
If they like what they see in Pryor, it could be an indication that the Raiders are at least willing to veer away from a traditional offense with Carson Palmer under center.
"I like the ceiling of Terrelle Pryor and where we think he can get to, but his skill set is completely different than Carson's, so we go forward with the idea, we know what Carson Palmer is. He's played in the league a number of years. We know what he can do," Olson said. "We don't really know quite yet what Terrelle Pryor can do at this level but we have a good feel for what he is athletically, so there will be packages for both of them to allow them to compete and we'll just be ready in either direction."
