The Oakland Raiders will start Terrelle Pryor in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos in an audition for the 2014 quarterback job.
The Raiders have been starting Matt McGloin.
"I think they're putting him in hopes that he fails," agent Jerome Stanley told CSN Bay Area on Monday. "I think they're putting him in hopes that he has a bad game, so (Allen) can then justify the Matt McGloin situation.
"You have to understand the coach is putting him in, he doesn't want him to look good," Stanley added. "And you can write that. ... If he looks good this week, it makes the past five weeks look like a bad decision."
Pryor later apologized for his agent's comments via Twitter.
