Russell Wilson looking forward to working with Terrelle Pryor

QB Russell Wilson says that the Seattle Seahawks locker room will become a "more athletic place" with the addition of Terrelle Pryor.

Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson has stated that new signing Terrelle Pryor has plenty to offer the team.

Quarterback Pryor was the subject of a trade between the Seahawks and the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday, making him the likely backup for the Super Bowl champions next season.

Wilson, who led his side to glory back in February, rates his new teammate highly, despite Pryor losing his starting spot for the Raiders last term.

"In our quarterback room, we want to be the hardest-working guys in the building," Wilson told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "That's the way we look at it and I know that Terrelle will bring that to the table. We're looking forward to that.

"I'm looking forward to just being around him and getting out there. I know that our locker room definitely became more athletic with him.

"He can do a lot of great things. He's a great competitor."

Pryor passed for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season before sustaining an injury and losing his place in the side to Matt McGloin.
