Either the Terrelle Pryor era is about to start or the Raiders will draft a young quarterback. Only thing that is certain is that Carson Palmer era seems ready to come to an end.
Adam Schefter is reporting that Palmer is highly unlikely to restructure his deal with the Raiders, therefor ensuring his release sometime in the near future, or the Raiders being willing to pay him $13 million.
Interesting: now “highly unlikely” Carson Palmer will be willing to restructure his contract meaning OAK pays him $13 million or cuts him.

The Raiders have already indicated they want to give Pryor a shot at winning the job, so you can’t imagine they’d pay someone $13 million to possibly sit the bench.
Dropping Palmer would free up some much-needed money, and give the team the option to select a quarterback in the draft.
