Terrelle Pryor is a man of many talents.
As a member of the Cleveland Browns, Pryor is listed as a wide receiver. However, Pryor also lined up as a quarterback, completing three of his five pass attempts for 35 yards. He also rushed four times for 21 yards and a touchdown, and, in his designated receiver role, caught eight balls for 144 yards.
But, wait, there’s more.
Pryor even lined up for a play as a safety.
Yes. He lined up on the defensive side of the ball.
The Swiss Army knife has a prior history of doing it all. As a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes, Pryor was a quarterback, throwing for 6,177 yards and 57 touchdowns. Prior was also known as a scrambling quarterback, adding another 2,164 yards and 17 touchdowns in 39 career college football games.
Pryor appeared in 15 games for the Oakland Raiders as quarterback, throwing for 1,953 yards and 9 touchdowns.
His head coach that first year in Oakland? It was Hue Jackson, the same coach he has now with the Browns.
The Browns would end up losing to the Miami Dolphins in overtime 30-24. But it wasn’t because of Pryor’s efforts. He said earlier this week that he would “cut off a finger” and “die on this field” to get a win.
He didn’t do either of those things, but maybe that’s just the next step.
