After hosting veteran NFL wide receiver Terrelle Pryor for a visit last week, the Jaguars and Pryor made things official Monday morning.
Pryor most recently played for the Bills but has had stops in New York (with the Jets), Washington, Cleveland, Kansas City, Seattle, and Oakland. Originally a supplemental draft pick by the Raiders in 2011, Pryor is now 29 years old.
From a skill set standpoint, Pryor has only been able to put it all together once. In 2015 he flourished with a 1,000-yard season and added five total touchdowns. But he's got prototypical size, speed, and athleticism. At six-foot-four and nearly 230 pounds, Pryor will immediately be the most physically imposing receiver on the Jaguars roster.
But he'll face stiff competition in his attempt to earn a roster spot. Dede Westbrook, DJ Chark, Chris Conley, and Marqise Lee are all locks to make the team. Keelan Cole has most likely locked up a spot as well. Pryor will have to be truly impressive throughout minicamp and training camp to stick around in Jacksonville. The most important part of the field for Pryor will be in the red zone. Proving that he can be a reliable scoring target inside the 20 would be Pryor's best shot at making it in Jacksonville.
