The Oakland Raiders 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 off-season 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 said on Twitter: “Thank you Mr Davis and Raidernation for the unbelievable support!! I will miss the Fans and all of the teammates I have met over the years with the Raiders organization!!”

The Raiders took Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft in 2011.

Peyton Manning insisted that he and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase didn't break any NFL rules when they met with Alabama Coach Nick Saban this month.

The quarterback said he's well aware of the rules prohibiting NFL players from meeting with their coaches prior to the start of off-season workouts, which began Monday.

Asked if he and Gase met together with Saban, Manning said: “That didn't happen. We know what the rules were and like I said, I was there on an independent project and Adam was as well.”

Gase got his coaching start under Saban at Michigan State in the 1990s.

Ndamukong Suh will be a no-show at the Detroit Lions' voluntary minicamp this week.

Suh won't be in Allen Park, Mich., on Tuesday with his teammates, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The person, who said Suh will attend the team's voluntary workouts in May and mandatory minicamp next month, spoke Monday night on condition of anonymity because the defensive tackle was not announcing his plans.
