Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor fires his agent


Pryor can’t play quarterback in the NFL.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor fired agent Jerome Stanley on Wednesday.

Stanley, who said his former client was being positioned to fail, bashed Raiders coach Dennis Allen for playing the 24-year-old Pryor over Matt McGloin versus the Denver Broncos on December 29.

After bettering Matt Flynn in the summer to become Oakland’s starter, Pryor struggled and threw seven touchdowns, against 11 picks, for 1,798 yards over 11 games.

Even more worrisome, Pryor only completed 57.4% of his 272 attempts.

Being precise is imperative and the former Buckeye lacks even a shred of touch on the ball.

Allen realizes that Pryor’s the antithesis of a classic pocket passer and can only produce as a dual-threat.

Hence, although not exactly akin to Johnny Unitas, the 23-year-old McGloin supplanted Pryor as the team’s signal-caller in November.

Regardless of what ultimately becomes of McGloin, Justin Bieber will compete in the UFC before the 6-foot-5, 233-pound Pryor matures into a decent field general.

However, capable of running the 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds, Pryor is a tremendously gifted sportsman who should learn to lineup at wide receiver.

Oakland finished in the basement of the AFC West and fielded the league’s 24th ranked offense.

Certainly not brimming with playmakers, Dennis Allen should maximize Pryor’s athleticism and gain a new weapon in “The Town.”

Accordingly, Terrelle Pryor’s future mouthpiece will have to convince the 2010 Rose Bowl MVP that such a move is in his best interests.
