Bengals signed QB Terrelle Pryor, formerly of the Chiefs.
Still only 25 years old -- he turns 26 in June -- Pryor impressed during his rookie camp tryout and will join A.J. McCarron and Josh Johnson on the Bengals' quarterback depth chart behind Andy Dalton. Although Pryor's passing skills are far less than NFL-starter caliber, he is a big, physical, tough quarterback with wide receiver-like athleticism. If forced into spot duty in the event of a Dalton injury, Pryor might give the Bengals a better chance to win a game or two than weak-armed, immobile McCarron. May 10 - 1:51 PM

Free agent QB Terrelle Pryor said he will not consider moving to another position.

"If I can't play quarterback, I can't play football," Pryor said. Pryor has the athleticism to give receiver or even tight end a try, but it does not appear he is willing to play either. Pryor is currently participating in the Bengals' rookie camp.
May 9 - 1:24 PM

The Bengals are bringing QB Terrelle Pryor in for a tryout.

He'll compete for a roster spot at this week's minicamp. Cincinnati is painfully thin at quarterback behind starter Andy Dalton, where incumbent Jason Campbell has retired and A.J. McCarron is currently penciled in as Dalton's top backup. Pryor was waived by Kansas City on Tuesday. A strong runner with limited passing ability, Pryor is destined to be a journeyman.

Chiefs waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

The Chiefs didn't draft a signal caller, but decided their quarterback room was too full. Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray now comprise Andy Reid's top four. Pryor's stay with the team lasted all of 42 days. Pryor is less than two years removed from starting nine games for the Raiders, but like Tim Tebow, his lack of passing skills is shutting doors faster than they can open.

The Chiefs aren't considering moving QB Terrelle Pryor to another position.

"We’re going to give him an opportunity to play quarterback and see how he does," coach Andy Reid said. "We think he’s a quarterback, and I think that’s what he wants to be." Pryor is approaching Tim Tebow territory, where he'd perhaps be better off switching positions to tight end. With Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray also in the Chiefs' quarterback room, Pryor will be far from assured of No. 3 duties.
Mar 24 - 4:04 PM

Chiefs signed QB Terrelle Pryor to a one-year contract.

He'll join Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray, and Tyler Bray in the Chiefs' offseason quarterback room. Essentially a more athletic Tim Tebow, Pryor has completed just 56.3 percent of his 302 career passes with a 6.5 YPA and 9:12 TD-to-INT ratio. Although he is physically imposing, Pryor's passing ability is backup caliber at best, and an NFL coach would have to design an extremely run-heavy offense to make him viable as a short-term starter. We'd be surprised if he ultimately landed a 53-man roster spot in Kansas City.
Jan 7 - 10:13 PM

Free agent QB Terrelle Pryor indicated on his Twitter page that he has signed with the Chiefs.

Pryor can be seen holding a playbook at what appears to be the Chiefs' facility. We knew he worked out for the team on Wednesday, and ostensibly they signed him, probably to a "reserve/future" contract. Former Colts and Bills WR Da'Rick Rogers also indicated on his Instagram that he's signed with the Chiefs.

Free agent QB Terrelle Pryor is working out for the Chiefs on Wednesday.

And it's as a quarterback. Pryor received some looks during the season after being among the Seahawks' final cuts last summer, but most of the teams were eyeing him as a receiver. Pryor has already admitted in the past that he can't catch a football. He's a good bet to land a reserve/future deal this winter.

Eagles worked out free agent QB Terrelle Pryor.

The Eagles are in the market for a No. 3 quarterback with Nick Foles sidelined. Pryor has visited with multiple teams since his August release, but has yet to land a contract.

Profootballtalk reports that free agent Terrelle Pryor worked out for the Redskins on Tuesday.

Washington is already three deep at quarterback as it heads into its bye week, so it's possible Pryor is drawing a look as a wideout. Pryor has drawn multiple workouts since his August release from the Seahawks, but has yet to land a contract.

Free agent Terrelle Pryor is part of a large group working out for the Giants Tuesday.

It's unclear if the Giants are kicking the tires on Pryor as a quarterback or wide receiver. He's also had workouts with the Bengals and Bucs over the last month without getting signed.

Free agent QB Terrelle Pryor worked out for the Bengals on Tuesday.

He was beaten out for a roster spot by Greg Little. The Cincinnati Enquirer believes the 6-foot-4, 233-pound Pryor was "almost certainly" worked out as a receiver, but there's been no confirmation. It would make sense, as Pryor's opportunities at quarterback have dried up.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 03:20:00 PM

The Buccaneers tried out free agent QB Terrelle Pryor on Monday.

Josh McCown may need surgery on his right (throwing) thumb, and the only other quarterback on Tampa Bay's current roster is Mike Glennon. A deficient thrower but dangerous athlete, Pryor is the complete inverse of Glennon.
Mon, Sep 22, 2014 05:20:00 PM

The Rams will evaluate and discuss possibly adding QB Terrelle Pryor.

The talented Pryor was waived by the Seahawks on Friday. Just about every team with question marks at quarterback should consider an add, and the Rams certainly fit the bill after losing Sam Bradford to another torn ACL. Austin Davis is the only quarterback on the roster behind new starter Shaun Hill.

Seahawks waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

He lost out to Tarvaris Jackson for the backup job. Despite his limitations as a passer, Pryor's unique physical traits should ensure he is not on the street for long. Pryor completed 21-of-39 passes for 281 yards (7.2 YPA), a touchdown and two interceptions this preseason. He added 97 yards and a TD on the ground.
