Clayton makes Raiders the Pryor favorite
By Bill Williamson
Add ESPN’s John Clayton to the list of those who think the Oakland Raiders are the favorite to draft former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the supplemental draft this summer. I could see the Raiders being in play, but I’m not so sure the Raiders should be considered the favorite to pull the trigger on Pryor. Oakland has never used a supplemental pick.
In other AFC West nuggets Wednesday evening:
A joint statement released by the NFL and NFLPA said that among those participating in this week’s discussions were Kansas City owner Clark Hunt and San Diego owner Dean Spanos as well as Kansas City guard Brian Waters. All three men have been involved in earlier discussions at different points this offseason.
- Another look at whether or not Philadelphia may be players for Oakland cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in free agent. There was a previous report that said the Eagles may not be in hot pursuit of Asomugha.
- Don’t expect the Panthers to simply give away receiver Steve Smith if they trade him. He has been connected to San Diego, Oakland and Denver in potential trade talks.
