Terrelle Pryor clears waivers, now a free agent
Terrelle Pryor is out of the NFL entirely.
Pryor, who was waived by the Browns yesterday, cleared waivers today. That makes him an unrestricted free agent, free to sign with any team.
It will be interesting to see if any team will sign him. Although Pryor wasn’t able to make it work as a quarterback, he has undeniable athletic talent and the kind of height and speed combination that teams are looking for in a wide receiver. He averaged 6.9 yards a carry during his year as the Raiders’ starting quarterback, so he clearly knows how to make plays with the ball in his hands.
But Pryor also may have run out of opportunities: The Browns were the only team interested in bringing him to training camp, and he wasn’t able to make it onto Cleveland’s Week One roster. It’s possible that Pryor’s days in the NFL are done.
