News: The Oakland Raiders have traded Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks.
Impact: Pryor was a third-round pick in the 2011 supplemental draft out of Ohio State. He started nine games last season, going 3-6, sharing the job with undrafted rookie free agent Matt McGloin. He went 156 of 272 for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions, with a passer rating of 69.1.

News: Pryor was traded from the Raiders to the Seahawks on Monday,'s Adam Schefter reports.
Impact: Details of Oakland's compensation were not initially reported, and the Raiders will likely just get a late-round draft pick, possibly one that's conditional based on Pryor making the Seahawks' final roster. The fit looks pretty good here, as the Seahawks already run an offense for a speedy quarterback, although Pryor's skill set is quite a bit different than Russell Wilson's, both as a runner and passer. Pryor is far from a lock to make the roster, as incumbent backup and Pete Carroll favorite Tarvaris Jackson re-signed with the 'Hawks in March. As Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR points out, Jackson has a fully guaranteed contract that very likely means he'll be the backup. The Pryor trade may make for a good headline outside of the fantasy world, but we're talking about a guy who will probably spend training camp battling B.J. Daniels for the No. 3 quarterback spot. Pryor still offers some promise in dynasty leagues, but his 2014 prospects don't really improve with this trade.

News: The Raiders are expected to release Pryor if they are unable to trade him by Monday, FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports.
Impact: There's likely a fair amount of interest in Pryor as a project and novelty athletic quarterback, but the fact that he's not perceived as a potential starter means the Raiders might have trouble getting anything in a trade, especially since everyone knows they'll cut Pryor otherwise. If the Raiders don't select a quarterback high in the draft, they'll likely head into 2014 with Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin as their top two passers.

News: The Seattle Seahawks and Rice have agreed to terms on a deal.

News: Rice (knee) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Seahawks, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports.
Impact: Rice visited with the Jets on Wednesday, but came away without a deal, and tweeted from his personal account that he'd be re-signing with the Seahawks, a fact confirmed by multiple sources. Rice is nearly six months removed from his ACL tear, and was recently cleared to begin making cuts, an important step in his recovery. Rice had received interest from several suitors, but he'll instead take his services back to the defending Super Bowl champions in Seattle, where he recorded 15 catches for 231 yards and three scores in his injury-shortened 2013.

News: Rice, who indicated earlier this week that he has been cleared to begin cutting again as his recovery from an ACL injury continues, visited the Jets on Wednesday, the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: While the Seahawks are thought to maintain interest in re-signing Rice, the Jets -- still looking to upgrade their wideout corps -- could be a good fit, with former Seattle VP of Football Administration John Idzik now working as the Jets GM. Meanwhile, as part of his visit with the Jets, Rice is undergoing a physical to evaluate his surgically-repaired knee, Manish Mehta of the Daily News reports.

News: Rice -- who suffered an ACL injury back on Oct. 28 -- indicated Monday that he has been cleared to begin cutting, the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: It's another significant step in the unsigned wideout's recovery from his knee injury, with the report suggesting that the Saints, Giants, Packers and Rice's 2013 team, the Seahawks, are all thought to have interest in his services.
