Leading up to Week 17, the Oakland Raiders announced that quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who hadn’t started a game since Week 10, would start the final game of the season.

Pryor’s agent Jerome Stanley wasn’t thrilled, ranting that the Raiders were setting Pryor up to fail, according to CSN Bay Area. From the report:

“I think they’re putting him in hopes that he fails,” Jerome Stanley told CSN Bay Area reporters. “That’s what I think Coach is doing. I think they’re putting him in hopes that he has a bad game, so he can then justify the Matt McGloin situation. I think that’s what’s going on, I do and it’s ridiculous.”

Raiders coach Dennis Allen called the remarks “ridiculous,” and Pryor had to issue an apology for his agent’s remarks.

In his final game of the season, Pryor completed 21-of-38 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders’ loss to the Broncos. He finished the 2013 season with 1,798 passing yards and a 7:10 touchdown-to-interception ratio over nine starts.
