Ohio State Football: Report: Former Ohio State Star Terrelle Pryor Will Move To WR After Being Cut By Cincinnati Bengals

Former Ohio State superstar quarterback has had an interesting NFL career, to say the least. After being picked in the 2011 Supplemental Draft by the Oakland Raiders and serving a five game suspension mandated by Roger Goodell for his involvement in the Ohio State tattoo scandal, Pryor played 14 games at quarterback between 2012 and 2013, with mixed result. In his 11 2013 appearances, Pryor completed 156-of-272 passes (57.4%) for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also ran for 576 yards and two touchdowns on 83 carries. 

After his brief tenure in Oakland, Pryor was traded to Seattle in 2014 but waived before the season, and has since bounced around to the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals. Today, it was announced that the Bengals had cut the former Buckeye star, and in response, agent Drew Rosenhaus began to tell teams that his client would do something that he had previously been against—move to wide receiver.

Pryor has an impressive build and a ton of speed and athleticism. Physically, he looks like a guy that can play at pretty much any skill position. He also once did this to the vaunted Pittsburgh Steeler defense:

Will this work out for Pryor? Time will tell, but we'd be surprised if he didn't at least have a few teams interested in seeing what he can do on the outside.
