OAKLAND -- It was the first time Terrelle Pryor took a meaningful snap in a football game since Jan. 4, 2011, the Sugar Bowl, and before scandal essentially ended his college career at Ohio State.Pryor played the entire second half for the Raiders in their eventual 3-0 loss to Dallas in both team's exhibition opener and, well, we'll let him describe his play."I'm angry at myself," Pryor said as he sat at his locker. "I don't think I played well. I thought Matt (Leinart) played great. I thought Carson (Palmer) played great. I thought everyone else on the team played great. I just think I played like dog crap."So I'm mad about that, about how I played today. So I'm angry and I'm going to come back stronger next week."A pretty harsh self-assessment for Al Davis' last draft pick, no?Pryor finished eight of 15 for 50 yards, with two sacks and an interception. His passer rating? An unsightly 32.6. He did, however, run for 21 yards on six carries."I was pleased he was able to get out there and get some reps and get some experience," said coach Dennis Allen. "Obviously, we have to do a little better job getting in and out of the huddle, and getting the play snapped a little bit sooner, but those are all things that can be corrected."He's a work in progress and just like I've always talked about, I want to see him get a little better every day."Pryor's showed his erratic arm and his "sinker" was on display, as were his ankle-breaking moves.In the end, though, they simply were not enough against the Cowboys. Even if Palmer thought Pryor had something to grow from in his outing."Just proud of the way he fought and fought and fought," Palmer said. "Things didn't go right, but he kept fighting."I'll be there for Terrelle, he knows that. But hes a very confident guy, obviously very talented. Hes played quarterback for long enough to know you cant show negative body language. Hes bummed mentally, but hes a champ. Hes a professional, and for being so young, hell bounce back. I cant wait to watch him play again next week."The Raiders play at Arizona on Friday."I thought my progressions were a little better," Pryor said. "I think sometimes I had some good throws but alsomy feet were messing up. I just played like dog crap, and Im mad. Im mad at myself. Its my fault we lost, Im mad about that too."
Raiders Pro Bowl left guard Kelechi Osemele, running back Taiwan Jones and safety Brynden Trawick are currently enjoying their offseason in New Zealand.
But a few videos they posted going white-water rafting and bungee jumping left head coach Jack Del Rio a bit anxious.
"Anxiety level went up a bit thinking of my BIG pro bowl LG on the rapids!!" Del Rio tweeted Monday. "Can't leave out Brynden or Taiwan either ... have fun and be safe"
Osemele has posted a handful of photos and videos from the trip, including one of a raft capsizing with the caption: "It got real out there!!! Category 4 Rapids #NewZealand." Another showed the 6-foot-5, 333-pounder doing a backflip off a bungee platform with the caption: "Just did a backflip off the highest swing in the WORLD!!!!!!! Crazy!!! #LivingLife"

Trent Richardson is reportedly in some trouble.
Richardson was arrested on Thursday night for domestic violence, according to TMZ Sports.
The former running back was taken into custody on a third degree charge, the report states, with bail being set for $1,000.
The arrest was made in Hoover, Alabama.
The Browns selected Richardson with the third overall pick in the 2012 draft.
He was traded to the Colts in 2013 and played for Indianapolis in 2014.
He signed with the Raiders in 2015 and appeared in three exhibition games, but did not make the team.
The 26-year old was cut by the Ravens last August.
