The 25-year-old Pryor couldn't beat out Tarvaris Jackson for Seattle's backup job. A third-round supplemental pick of the Raiders in 2011, Pryor had 12 touchdowns (nine passing, three rushing) and 11 interceptions in 14 games over two seasons for Oakland.

He had 281 passing yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the preseason, and also rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown.

After Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury, the Rams are going with Shaun Hill at quarterback. Behind him is Austin Davis, who has no NFL regular-season experience.
