Default Trade for Terrelle Pryor?

Hear me out before this thread gets criticized or deleted...

Ben is up for contract renewal after 2014. Steelers historically renew keeper guys a year ahead. That means Ben will command 20mil per year after this season. We have plenty of holes on both sides of the ball. Ben has maybe 3 years left if he plays Ben-ball from here on out. We are clearly rebuilding even if the Steeler faithful deny this.

Pryor is on the rise. His potential seems unlimited and the game seems to be more geared to "mobile" QB's. Plus, that is what the colleges are producing. So our next QB may be in the mold of Pryor anyway. Classic Brady - Manning guys are becoming more rare. His contract is cheap, and he is a local WPIAL legend.

This would be a clear rebuild for a year or so, but it would free up a lot of cash to allow Pryor to play the way Ben did in 2004-2008 when he was at his best as a game manager as the team was solid all over the field. Plus if we draft and coach well, we can be set for another decade of excellence. A lot to ask of Pryor indeed.

Do we trade our best asset ahead of the curve? What if Ben clearly begins to decline sooner than later and we are stuck in salary cap hell as a result ?

Raiders are ripe after Jamarcus Russell, Carson Palmer and Matt Flynn.

Just an idea!

No.

shouldn't the fact that the Steelers didn't use a supplemental draft pick on him tell you something?

Wait... are you talking about a fantasy football keeper league?

Do you really think the Raiders would trade the only QB they have .........really? We haven't had a QB that was this promising in a long time. It's way early yet so, I'm not ready to say he's "the guy" just yet. But..... get real, there is no way the Raiders are trading TP at this point.

Or just draft a QB since we're heading for the number one pick anyways?
