07:50 PM ET 03.08 | Pryor is hoping he can earn the starting job in Oakland but it might simply be handed to him as the Raiders are struggling with what to do with Carson Palmer and his $13 million salary. The Raiders are trying to find a way to reduce that salary as much as they can, but the best option might be to just cut Palmer and move on with Pryor and another, cheaper quarterback. Even if Palmer stays around, the indication is that Pryor will be the starter next season as he's the favorite to win the open competition that will occur in training camp this offseason. The biggest evidence suggesting this is the fact that the Raiders are trying to reduce Palmer's salary as much as they can, which is basically saying they're not anticipating him being a starter, let alone a $13 million quarterback in 2013.

The Ottawa Rough Riders should have released him three years ago and he should have retired then.

Yikes, shows how old I am. I thought they were still in existence. I followed the CFL in the late 70's-mid 80's. Just assumed because they were decent that they were still around. Anyway, insert any CFL team name instead.

The bi partisan report was manipulated by lies about the boogey man WMD,You have to do better.

You mean they didn't do their own research? Talk about a failure of leadership. Typical Democratic response.

"It's not our fault. No one told us what to do. Someone has to make our decisions for us!"

When are you guys going to stand on your own feet rather than relying on the efforts of others?
