According to Mike Silver of the NFL Network, if free agent quarterback Josh Freeman signs with the Raiders, it will be as a starter over Terrelle Pryor.
If Josh Freeman goes to Oakland, it’d be as a starter over Terrelle Pryor @MikeSilver says.

This makes absolutely no sense to me. Freeman’s completion percentage has been in the 40 percent range. Pryor gives the Raiders the best chance to win right now with his legs and improved accuracy.
The biggest reason the Raiders want Freeman is because of offensive coordinator Greg Olsen’s history with him from their days in Tampa together.
Update: The Raiders are considered the most likely landing spot for Freeman.
