    Terrelle Pryor will join the Oakland Raiders after sitting out five games this season.

    The Oakland Raiders have used a third-round pick in the NFL's supplemental draft to select former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

    The Raiders announced the selection on Twitter on Monday.

    "The Oakland Raiders selected Terrelle Pryor, QB, Ohio State, in the 18th position of Round 3 of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft," the tweet said Monday morning.

    Pryor will not be eligible to practice with or play for Oakland until the team's sixth game of the season. When he was allowed to enter Monday's draft, he was handed a five-game suspension by Commissioner Roger Goodell – the same number of games he would have sat out had he returned to Ohio State.

    Pryor gave up his final season with the Buckeyes after an investigation into the team's memorabilia-for-cash scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job.

    Oakland forfeits its third-round selection in the 2012 draft.
