The Seahawks sent a seventh-round pick to the Raiders for Terrelle Pryor.
Alameda, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Oakland Raiders made good on their intention of parting ways with Terrelle Pryor prior to the start of offseason workouts, dealing the deposed starting quarterback to the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on Monday.
The move comes two days after a FoxSports.com report stated that the Raiders would cut Pryor on Monday if unable to find a trade partner.
They did in the Seahawks, who will send a seventh-round pick in the upcoming draft in exchange for the athletic third-year pro.
Borland measuring up as a 'safe' pick

It's easy to measure speed, strength and explosion when evaluating prospects for the NFL Draft.
Until the number crunchers finally figure out how to quantify instinct, however, players like former University of Wisconsin star Chris Borland will likely have to settle for being selected on the second or third days of the process, and earning the tag overachiever when they become productive players at the professional level.
Borland, a bruising linebacker with an innate feel for the game, reads and diagnoses so well that he can turn a 4.9 on the stopwatch into a 4.5 rather quickly.
And while "safe" isn't always the most popular adjective to describe people these days, NFL teams aren't teenage girls, so they should be running toward, can't-miss contributors like Borland, the 2013 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year with the Badgers.
