Palmer Unlikely To Restructure With Raiders, Potential Cardinals Option

When the Raiders gave up a first- and second-round pick for Carson Palmer in October 2011, the hope was that the former Bengals quarterback who threatened to retire unless he was traded would help the organization to their first playoff appearance since 2002.

Raiders Coach Says Palmer Will Have Competition At QB

Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer threw for 4,018 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2012, but that doesn’t mean coach Dennis Allen is going to just hand the starting job to Palmer next year. Allen told the NFL Network on Thursday that Palmer can expect to have some competition at quarterback.

Raiders take a few steps forward but many steps backward in disappointing 2012 season

This was supposed to be a year where the Raiders would finally have a winning season and possibly challenge for a playoff spot. But under new head coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie, the team’s rebuilding efforts were largely unsuccessful. A few players showed promise but overall, it was a frustrating season for the organization and the team’s long suffering fans.

It’s Official: Terrelle Pryor Makes His First Career Start Against The Chargers

After almost a week of waiting, head coach Dennis Allen makes it official by naming Terrelle Pryor as his starting quarterback in Sunday’s finale at San Diego. Pryor hasn’t started a game since he won the 2011 Sugar Bowl while at Ohio State. Cornerback Philip Adams is on injured reserve with a groin injury and has been replaced by Brandian Ross.

Raiders Leaning Toward Starting Matt Leinart In Sunday’s Finale At San Diego

With quarterback Carson Palmer out for the final game with cracked ribs, competition begins in earnest for the starting quarterback job between backups Matt Leinart and Terrelle Pryor. Indications are that Pryor will get more than three plays, but the bulk of the playing time will go to Leinart. The Raiders were also shut out of the Pro Bowl for the first time since 2003.

Terrelle Pryor Should Get More Playing Time In Raiders’ Finale

With the Raiders mired in another losing season, now is the time for quarterback Terrelle Pryor to get his chance to prove to his coaches and the fans what he can do. The Raiders are guaranteed a top five pick in the upcoming NFL draft so there’s nothing to lose by playing him. In fact, a loss by the team only helps to ensure a better draft pick.
