OAKLAND -- Terrelle Pryor did enough Thursday night to give coach Pete Carroll something to think about when putting together the 53-man roster of the Seattle Seahawks.

Coming in as the third quarterback after starter Russell Wilson and backup Tarvaris Jackson, Pryor put together a 10-play, 87-yard drive culminating in a 33-yard touchdown pass to Phil Bates with eight seconds to go in the first half.

Before giving way to B.J. Daniels with 8:34 to play, Pryor was 11 of 17 for 134 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. He also rushed four times for 12 yards in a 41-31 loss to his former team at O.co Coliseum.

Pryor completed 57.4 percent of his passes for 1,798 yards with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season with the Raiders. He rushed for 576 yards, a franchise record for a quarterback.

The crowd greeted Pryor warmly but not raucously, having at least temporarily sworn their allegiance to second-round draft pick Derek Carr, who led the Raiders to four touchdowns in four possessions.

In the offseason, Pryor requested a trade and was dealt to Seattle in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick -- not much of a return on a player who cost the Raiders a third-round pick as a supplemental selection in 2011. Pryor was the last draft pick made by late owner Al Davis.

The Raiders used the pick acquired for Pryor to select safety Jonathan Dowling, a player whose likely spot with the club this season would be on the practice squad.

Pryor's throw led Bates perfectly, with Neiko Thorpe trailing in coverage. He was 7 of 10 for 85 yards in the first half. It was a much better outcome than Seattle's previous preseason game, when Pryor threw only two passes, had one intercepted, then said afterward he hadn't expected to play.

The Seahawks kept only two quarterbacks last season, but Carroll is intrigued by Pryor's athletic ability and could utilize him in some formations at the same time as Wilson.
