Pryor gets 'House'-work in during bye
By Paul Gutierrez
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Terrelle Pryor did not head to Los Angeles to work with quarterback guru Tom House over the Raiders’ bye this past weekend.
Instead, House came up to Oakland to work with the Raiders quarterback on Sunday.
“We went to a local field and got in some good work,” Pryor said after a light practice Monday as the team began preparations for Pryor’s favorite team growing up, his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers.
Pryor was not able to work out with Raiders coaches during the bye -- players are guaranteed four days off due to the CBA -- but Pryor said he did come into the facility to study film on his own after Oakland’s final team practice on Wednesday.
“You know me,” he said, “steady trying to get better.”
House, a former big league pitcher who is now a pitching coach at USC, has worked with quarterbacks from Drew Brees to Tom Brady to Carson Palmer to Tim Tebow on throwing mechanics.
Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said last week he was the one who recommended House to Pryor this past offseason.
