Terrelle Pryor insisted last year that he had no plans of making a positional change while playing in the NFL. But with the quarterback having received no contract offers this offseason, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has informed squads that Pryor is willing to be a wide receiver.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, there is interest from NFL squads in acquiring Pryor as a wide receiver, as confirmed by Rosenhaus.
While playing for the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, Pryor admitted in interviews that he didn't “know how to catch” and said that he’s “been a quarterback all of [his] whole life.” That thinking has apparently changed now, with no team showing an interest in him as a quarterback.
After a stint with the Oakland Raiders from 2011 to 2013, Pryor has tried out for the Seahawks (2014), Kansas City Chiefs (2015) and Cincinnati Bengals (2015), but only as a member of the offseason/practice squads.
The intention to switch to wide receiver could be successful for the 25-year-old Pryor, who is known for his speed and size. In his career with the Raiders, he accumulated 1,935 passing yards, with nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions, plus 627 rushing yards and three rushing TDs.
