The Buffalo Bills, in desperate need of some playmakers for the league’s worst offense, are meeting with free agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor. The receiver was spotted in the Buffalo Airport on Monday, and ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports that the Bills have offered him a contract, so a signing could be coming.
Pryor was cut recently from the New York Jets, after suffering a slight groin tear that was expected to sideline him for two weeks. (Tonight’s game would be the second of those two weeks from the original prognosis.) Though he wasn’t a star for the Jets, Pryor’s stats (two touchdowns and 235 receiving yards) are better than any player on Buffalo’s sorry passing offense today.
The 6’4” 228 pound Pryor could be desirable in Buffalo for his athletic traits, if nothing else. The former Ohio State star had a 4.38 forty yard dash in college. Buffalo doesn’t really have a great deep threat on the roster, and Kelvin Benjamin running a slot fade doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.
Following a stint as a dual-threat quarterback in the NFL, Pryor converted to wide receiver, where he notched a 77-catch, 1007 yard season with the Browns in 2016. He signed a one year deal with Washington in 2017, but that year was marred with injuries, and Pryor signed a two year deal with New York ahead of this season.
