The Raiders announced last night (April 19) on Twitter that they have traded quarterback Terrelle Pryor, in exchange for a 2014 seventh-round draft pick.
Some sports fans who saw the tweet announcement were not pleased and expressed their shock on Twitter. On the other side of the spectrum were fans who saw this as a smart move. What do you think?
