NFL • The Oakland Raiders have traded away the final player drafted by late owner Al Davis. Oakland dealt quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday for a seventh-round pick in next month's draft.

The Raiders fulfilled Pryor's wish to be traded a day before the start of their offseason program. Pryor had asked to be dealt after the season when he lost his starting job to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin, and the Raiders made the move after acquiring Matt Schaub from Houston to be the starter.

Pryor will compete with Tarvaris Jackson and B.J. Daniels for the backup job to Russell Wilson on the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.



• Josh Freeman signed with the New York Giants on Monday to be a backup quarterback to Eli Manning. Freeman was released by Tampa Bay early last season and spent the rest of 2013 with Minnesota. His one start for the Vikings was in a 23-7 loss to the Giants in which he struggled, going 20 of 53 for 190 yards with an interception.

• The Cincinnati Bengals exercised a 2015 contract option for receiver A.J. Green on Monday, letting them turn their focus to an extension for quarterback Andy Dalton. Green has 3,833 yards receiving in his first three seasons. The Bengals will have to pay him the average of the top 10 receivers in the NFL. Dalton's deal expires after this season.

• The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says former NFL and Southern California receiver Keyshawn Johnson was arrested early Monday after a report of a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. Johnson is an ESPN commentator and analyst.
