Raiders want to see what they have in Pryor

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- After watching the success athletic quarterbacks had this past season in the NFL, new Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson wants to see if he has one of those dual-threat runner-passers on his roster.

Olson said Wednesday it will be important to see what Terrelle Pryor can do for the Raiders during offseason workouts and minicamps to get a better sense of what the Raiders have at quarterback.

While starter Carson Palmer is a known entity with more than 120 games and nearly 30,000 yards passing to his credit, Pryor is more of an unknown who showed positive signs in his one start in the season finale in December.

Now the Raiders want to know whether Pryor can do for Oakland what Colin Kaepernick did for San Francisco across the bay.
