By acquiring Matt Schaub, the Oakland Raiders are now likely to trade or release Terrelle Pryor soon.

Pryor reportedly asked for a trade in January, and another report cites April 21 as a deadline for the Raiders to trade or release him. That's when the team's offseason work starts, and that speculation may remove any trade leverage general manager Reggie McKenzie has left.

With that, here are five teams that may have interest in Pryor.

The Jaguars have traded Blaine Gabbert and may use the third overall pick on a quarterback, but Pryor could be added to the mix behind Chad Henne and at least get an opportunity to earn a roster spot.

4. Chicago Bears

The Bears’ situation behind Jay Cutler looks shaky with the free agent departure of Josh McCown, and Pryor would have a chance to develop his all-around skills under the tutelage of head coach Marc Trestman.

3. Cleveland Browns

The Browns may be tied to any available quarterback on some level between now and when they’re on the clock in the first round of May’s draft, but as things are right now Pryor could compete with Brian Hoyer for the starting job.

Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone injury last season exposed a lack of suitable depth behind him, and Pryor’s raw ability alone makes him an upgrade over Scott Tolzien.

The Lions only have Kellen Moore behind Matthew Stafford right now, and Pryor's potential should be more than enough to put him on their radar.
