Terrelle Pryor was a legend at Ohio State, setting all kinds of records and milestones at quarterback in three years under Jim Tressel.
But despite playing quarterback in the NFL for his first three seasons with the Oakland Raiders, Pryor soon moved to wide receiver. He found some success at the position, making 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns with the Cleveland Browns in 2016.
Pryor would play wide receiver for the final two years of his NFL career. In his final two seasons with Washington, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, he logged 36 receptions for 492 yards and three touchdowns.
He tried to resurrect his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but didn’t make the cut.
At this point, the playing career of Terrelle Pryor appears to be over.
