SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks acquired Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor in exchange for a 2014 seventh-round draft pick, the team announced Monday afternoon.

“Terrelle is an incredibly explosive athlete and we’re excited for him to come in and compete,” said John Schneider, Seahawks executive vice president of football operations and general manager.

Pryor, 24, a third-round pick by the Raiders in the 2011 supplemental draft, passed for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 11 games for the Raiders last season.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie told reporters at the NFL Annual Meeting last month that Pryor asked to be let go. “Terrelle wants to start so bad,” McKenzie said. “I’ll visit with him. We’ll talk to him.”

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Pryor had the third lowest Total QBR among qualified QBs last season, ESPN.com said.

The Raiders recently acquired Matt Schaub in a trade with the Houston Texans, and Schaub is expected to be Oakland’s starter, with Matt McGloin serving as backup.

Pryor is expected to compete with Tarvaris Jackson for the backup position behind starting Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Pryor has one year left on his rookie contract, at $705,000, which is more than Wilson’s $662,434.  Jackson is the highest paid of the quarterbacks on Seattle’s roster, at $1.25 million.  Jackson’s one-year deal is also guaranteed money.

The Seahawks also have second-year quarterback B.J. Daniels on its roster.
