Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has fired agent Jerome Stanley, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to Comcast SportsNet reporter Fallon Smith on Wednesday.

The news comes less than a month after Stanley blasted head coach Dennis Allen by saying he was setting Pryor up to fail with a Dec. 29 start against the Denver Broncos.

"I think they're putting him in hopes that he fails,” Stanley exclusively told CSNBayArea.com on Dec. 23. “That's what I think coach is doing. I think they're putting him in hopes that he has a bad game, so he can then justify the Matt McGloin situation. I think that's what's going on, I do and it's ridiculous..."

Pryor defended his coach in the immediate aftermath of Stanley's claims, but stuck with his agent at the time. With the season in the rear-view mirror, Pryor made a decision for new representation.

Pryor, 24, started nine of his 11 games in 2013, his third NFL season. The 6-foot-6, 230-pound quarterback was 156-for-272 (57.4 percent) for seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He finished the season with a 3-6 starting record.
