01:16 PM ET 11.27 | Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen revealed Monday that the team has "discussed" using the third-string signal caller Terrelle Pryor recently, according to the Contra Costa Times. Pryor is still third on the depth chart, behind Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. The Raiders are 3-8, having lost four straight games ahead of a Week 13 showdown with the similarly hapless Cleveland Browns. Allen hinted that the team could look to Pryor to rejuvenate its sagging fortunes and add another dimension to an offense scoring less than 20 points per game this season. Allen was less clear on exactly what role Pryor could play for the Raiders. Replacing Palmer seems unlikely, but Pryor could be used in special packages designed to take advantage of his mobility and big arm.

Apparently they don't think Leinart will show them much, either.

Nothing to lose at this point. Might as well gauge the future.

When was the last time Leinart got serious playing time.....about 5 years ago?

What we are seeing here is a transformation of the QB position... Good to see the Raiders have SOME sense, here. The days of the "traditional" glass house QB standing in the pocket are fading away fast.

Actually I think he stepped in as Matt Schaub's backup last season, and got knocked out for the remainder of the season one week after his first start.

Maybe the Raiders should consider RICHARD Pryor?
