Jaguars sign wide receiver Terrelle Pryor

Terrelle Pryor, Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN. Pryor is expected to be on the field with the Jaguars at organized team activities on Monday.

Pryor spent the 2018 campaign with the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills, playing in eight games and logging 16 catches for 252 yards and a couple of touchdowns. He began the year with the Jets, appearing in six contests before being waived and signing with the Bills.

The 29-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Ohio State, was originally selected by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Pryor entered the league as a quarterback and actually started 10 games under center over his first three seasons with the Raiders, but he struggled to find success, totaling 1,953 yards, nine touchdowns, and 12 interceptions while completing 56.3 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 69.3.

He then joined the Cleveland Browns, and after spending one season there as a backup quarterback, Pryor transitioned to wide receiver. The move turned out to be a smashing success, as Pryor ended up hauling in 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four scores in 2016.

Pryor would then go on to sign with the Washington Redskins that ensuing offseason, but he did not have nearly the same type of production, as he played in just nine games due to injury and finished with only 20 catches for 240 yards and a touchdown.

The Jaguars are in desperate need of receiving help, so perhaps Pryor can revitalize his career in Jacksonville.
