The Seahawks released Terrelle Pryor on Friday, who was vying for a backup role behind Super Bowl champion quarterback Russell Wilson, according to a report.
The #Seahawks have released QB Terrelle Pryor, source says— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 30, 2014
Pryor, 25, was selected in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft in 2011 by the Oakland Raiders.
He accrued 1,953 passing yards, seven touchdowns and 12 interceptions over 14 games in the Bay Area from 2012-13.
Pryor also added 627 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
In April 2014, Oakland traded Pryor to Seattle in exchange for a seventh-round draft choice.
Pryor was competing with quarterbacks B.J. Daniels and Tarvaris Jackson for a roster spot.
He will go through waivers, and if unclaimed, Pryor will become a free agent.
