Terrelle Pryor won't be a Raider this year

By Bill Williamson

Well, we can forget the notion of Terrelle Pryor becoming an Oakland Raider this season.

ESPN’s John Clayton is reporting that the former Ohio State quarterback is ineligible for the supplemental draft. There was heavy speculation that the Raiders could be interested in Pryor.

My thoughts on the development? No great loss for the Raiders. He is a project who will take time to develop. Whether he joins an NFL team this year or next, it will still take him time to develop into a player worthy of playing time.

In other AFC West updates:

The Chargers have re-signed quarterback Billy Volek. I will have some thoughts on that in an upcoming post.

Star San Diego tight end Antonio Gates is on the physically unable to perform list. It is nothing major. The team is bringing him back slowly from an injury-filled 2010 season. There aren’t any major concerns art this point.

The Chargers have an update on their stadium efforts.
