NAPA (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says quarterback Terrelle Pryor has agreed to a four-year contract with the Oakland Raiders.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal had not been announced by the team.
Raiders senior executive John Herrera says that Pryor is in Napa at the team’s training camp facility and is expected to sign a deal Thursday night.
The Raiders selected Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft on Monday.
The former Ohio State star can start practicing with his new team on Friday and could play in the final exhibition game Sept. 2 in Seattle. Pryor then will begin serving a five-game suspension.
