Terrelle Pryor Heading To Buffalo?


 

 

Could Terrelle Pryor be heading  to Buffalo?

NFL.com reports the Oakland Raiders and quarterback Terrelle Pryor will part ways Monday if a deal cannot be reached. A young, confident quarterback with experience as a starter in Oakland,  Pryor is an ideal candidate for the Buffalo Bills.

Last season, the Bills dealt with a string of injuries at quarterback, leaving them under the guidance of undrafted free agents Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel. This year, Manuel’s health is a main concern and the Buffalo Bills are sure to look for ways to upgrade that backup position. Pryor has the athletic type similar to Manuel along with a strong-arm and  good height.

Terrelle Pryor played admirably last season. Eventually, erratic play and injury overshadowed the rest of his season. Part of the blame falls on Oakland’s poor blocking. In Pryor’s short stint as a starter he played with confidence in the pocket. The kind of confidence seen in players who want to be the starter…(Remember Vince Young?). The Buffalo Bills could use the pressure from another quarterback in the mix with Manuel. This could give him enough push to become the starter Buffalo fans want him to be. If he gets hurt, Pryor is more than qualified to step into his shoes.

Terrelle Pryor would be an interesting pickup in the situation where things don’t work out with Manuel. NFL.com reports the reason behind Pryor’s  leave is that he wanted to be the starter in Oakland. Although the situation isn’t ideal for him, Terrelle Pryor still has a chance to start. He is also  a cheap option if the Bills want to add some insurance to the quarterback position before the draft.

Terrelle Pryor should be waived from the Raiders today. What do you think of Terrelle Pryor? Is he an upgrade from Thad Lewis and/or Jeff Tuel? Comment below.

    You obviously didn’t see Pryor play last year, because I certainly wouldn’t use words like confident, and played admirably to describe him. If all you want is him to run, then there’s no doubt Pryors your man, but if you’re looking for a QB that can throw. Good luck.

    Pryor reminds me of Jason Campbell. The intangibles are there, he just needs a team like Buffalo. Buffalo has the offensive tools and defensive talent for Pryor to develop into a strong #2 option.

    In regards to his play last year, any QB in his situation would have struggled. Can’t hold it against him.

    If Buffalo wants him all the power to them, he lost the job last year to an undrafted rookie, so let’s not lay all the blame at the Raiders doorstep, when you’re a QB in the NFL, there are certain things you should be able to do, when you say Pryor has the intangibles, I agree, to be a great football player, however not a QB, he overthrows his receivers he throws to the first open man, usually overthrows, his mechanics are terrible, I watched every game, so if you think this guy has the intangibles to be a solid then I think you should look at his game film. Oh by the way, he does not want to be a backup, he wants to start.
