NFL notebook: Pryor will be cut if he's not traded

| Saturday, April 19, 2014, 6:54 p.m.

The Raiders will cut Terrelle Pryor if they can't work out a trade for the third-year quarterback, Fox Sports reported.

Pryor, a former Jeannette star, will not be part of the Raiders when the team begins offseason workouts Tuesday, the report said.

The Raiders traded for former Texans quarterback Matt Schaub last month.

Savage turns down draft invite

Former Pitt quarterback Tom Savage, whose NFL Draft stock has risen dramatically since the end of the season, has declined an invitation to attend the event May 8 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, according to @GoPittFootball, the program's official Twitter account.

Savage, who was not available for comment, is considered one of the draft's top quarterback prospects, and is projected by ESPN analyst Todd McShay to be selected by the Houston Texans with the first pick of the second round.

Savage played only one season at Pitt, completing 238 of 389 pass attempts for 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2013.

Harbaugh gets statue

Ravens coach John Harbaugh was added to Miami, Ohio's Cradle of Coaches. He unveiled a sculpture of himself with right arm raised in triumph. Harbaugh says he'd like to strike that pose a few more times this season.

It's the ninth statue on a plaza outside the football stadium in Oxford, Ohio, joining the likenesses of Earl β€œRed” Blaik, Paul Brown, Carm Cozza, Paul Dietzel, Weeb Ewbank, Ara Parseghian, John Pont and Bo Schembechler.

Kelly set to bid on Bills

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is prepared to make a bid to buy the Bills. Donald Trump's on board, too.

Don't discount the family of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs. And include New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi's name for added spice.

It's not every day β€” or every year β€” an NFL franchise goes on the market as the Bills are, following owner Ralph Wilson's death last month.

Wilson's wishes to have the team sold rather than passed on to his family raise the possibility of the Bills relocating from the city that's been home for more than 50 years. Toronto and Los Angeles are potential landing spots because owners would have an opportunity to make more money than in Buffalo, the NFL's second-smallest market.

Manziel works out for Browns

The Browns held a private workout for former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in College Station, NFL.com reported. The former Heisman Trophy winner is expected to visit the Browns' facilities in Ohio next week.

The Browns have the No. 4 overall draft pick. They also have the 26th pick in the first round.
