Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor said that he called up former NFL quarterback Rich Gannon to try to work out with him, in order to get some on the field advice.
“I called him and he gave me some wisdom on the game of football,” Pryor said.
Pryor believes all he needs to do is improve his footwork, while some scouts have questioend his throwing mechanics.
“I work with the best, I work with Carson every day,” Pryor said. “I think the biggest thing is to keep working on my feet and getting my footwork done because sometimes it’s not consistent. When it’s consistent, I make perfect throws. When it’s not, sometimes it’s not the best drive. So I just have to keep working on that and getting better at it.”
BEST OF MAXIM
Terrelle Pryor is trying to master two languages this offseason: Spanish and the terminology of Oakland's new playbook.
The second-year Raiders quarterback is about to start an online Spanish class that will count toward the college degree he was unable to finish at Ohio State University. Pryor turned pro last summer after an eligibility scandal would have caused him to miss...
Every season, a few players come out of nowhere to change the fortunes of their teams and essentially change the landscape of the league while becoming permanent stars. In the past, guys like Arian Foster, Marques Colston, and Jared Allen have been “that guy.” Here are 5 players in the AFC West who could be [...]
Top five Kickers
Sebastian Janikowski: No doubt about it, Janikowski is the best kicker in the NFL. Still, the fact that he was drafted in the first round was foolish at best. I don’t care how good a kicker is, a first round pick is for your starting QB, WR, RB, etc. Not to mention you find solid talent in free agency. Seabass set a league record by attempting over 10 kicks...
The New York Jets have signed veteran offensive tackles Stephon Heyer and Ray Willis.
The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Heyer entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Washington in 2007 and started 33 games for the Redskins from 2007-10. In 2011 he was active for 12 games, including two starts, with the Oakland Raiders after signing as an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 3.
When the Raiders signed Matt Leinart this offseason, most assumed he’d be the primary backup to Carson Palmer rather than Terrelle Pryor. Oakland offensive coordinator Greg Knapp was Leinart’s quarterback coach in Houston last year. However, according to the Contra Costa Times, the backup quarterback job is still wide open and that Pryor will have a chance to win the job if he...
Although the Oakland Raiders have not signed any of their 2012 NFL Draft picks, all six players have participated in the offseason team activities. With new general manager Reggie McKenzie in his first year running the organization and the turnover from last year's front office, Oakland is taking its time to sign the players.
The lack of draft picks signing should not be a...
With the departure of last year's back-up running back Michael Bush to the Chicago Bears, the Oakland Raiders were very thin at the position. In order to fill the roster hole, the Raiders traded offensive lineman Bruce Campbell to the Carolina Panthers for running back Mike Goodson. After two Raiders organized team activities, Goodson likes the new offensive system.
