Seattle released Terrelle Pryor Friday night prior to final cut down day. The Seahawks traded a 7th round pick to Oakland this offseason to acquire the athletic QB, but with such a deep roster and a veteran backup in Tarvaris Jackson, there was no room for Pryor. (Source: Ian Rapaport on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Pryor showed flashes this preseason and with the state of some quarterback rooms across the league, he may have done enough to get a shot on another squad. When given the opportunity to start last season for the Raiders, Pryor averaged nearly 15 fantasy points per game, which was better than Jay Cutler. If Pryor were to get an opportunity, say in St. Louis for instance, he would certainly be a valuable fantasy asset with his world class running ability. Owners should have Pryor on their radar and if he ends up in a good spot, he would certainly be worth a waiver wire claim a few weeks into the season.

Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell praised QB Terrelle Pryor, stating "He's come along really well, he's learned really fast, been impressed with that and how he's been able to pick it up and we will just continue to let him play and see how far he can come." (Source: The Associated Press
Fantasy Impact: Pryor has had a few jaw-dropping runs thus-far in the preseason, and has shown some touch as a passer. While he has 0 value in re-draft leagues, it seems that Pryor is picking up the system, and has taken to Seattle well. Players with Pryor's skill-set don't come along very often, and if he continues to progress, he could become a future fantasy contributor.

In his "Final 53-Man Roster" prediction, Josh Davis of 12thmanrising.com has Terrelle Pryor headed to the practice squad. Davis also sees Tavaris Jackson winning the backup job, and B.J. Daniels being cut. (Source: 12thmanrising.com
Fantasy Impact: Davis believes Pryor will pass through waivers because "teams will steer clear of his expiring contract". While Pryor will be irrelevant barring cataclysmic QB injuries in 2014, his play in 2013 proved that Pryor can be fantasy relevant due to his scrambling ability. While Pryor profiles as a long-term backup plan for quarterback Russell Wilson, time on the practice-squad may convince Pryor that his ultimate NFL position is not QB, but more of a slash player. In summary, its safe to ignore Pryor in 2014, but keep an eye out for him should an opportunity arise.

ProFootballTalk | Aug 30th
The Rams’ patience may have paid off. Per a league source, the Seahawks will release quarterback Terrelle Pryor. A 2011 third-round supplemental pick of the Raiders, Pryor will hit the waiver wire, since he doesn’t yet have four years of experience. The Rams could very well be interested in Pryor, who has shown flashes of…
