Former Raiders QB switching positions

Former Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had previously said he was an NFL quarterback, but apparently that is coming to an end. For now, at least.

After being released by four teams, Pryor’s agent Drew Rosenhaus has said that his client will switch to the wide receiver position.

Pryor often struggled with his footwork and mechanics while playing quarterback, but used his freakish athleticism to make plays for the offense. The most memorable play was when he ran 93 yards to beat the Steeler’s defense for a touchdown on the opening play from scrimmage.

After nine starts for the Raiders in 2013, the Raiders traded him to Seattle for a seventh-round pick. Pryor didn’t make it out of training camp, and was signed by the Chiefs before they released him before Organized Team Activities.

Following the Chiefs, the 25-year-old quarterback reunited with Hue Jackson in Cincinnati but was released this week.

Now the 6-foot-6, 240-pound former Buckeye star must find a way to transition into a wide receiver to keep his NFL hopes alive. It will be interesting to see who takes a flyer on him and how he can produce.
