Terrelle Pryor signs with Buffalo Bills

After a free agent visit, the receiver is staying in Buffalo

A day after word surfaced that Terrelle Pryor was in Buffalo for a workout, the free agent receiver is signing a contract with the Buffalo Bills. ESPN reporter Josina Anderson, who had the news yesterday that the Bills extended a contract offer to Pryor, is reporting that Pryor is making his way back to Orchard Park to sign the deal. Pryor was released from the New York Jets two weeks ago after suffering a minor groin injury.

Update: The Bills announced the deal late Tuesday afternoon.

The former Ohio State star converted to wide receiver in the NFL, and had a 1000-yard season in 2016 for the Cleveland Browns. For the past year and a half, he’s been less effective, working through injuries, but his athletic ability outmatches pretty much any receiver on Buffalo’s roster. If nothing else, he gives the team a solid sideline threat with enough speed to threaten a safety.

And hey, at the rate Buffalo’s season is going, maybe he wouldn’t mind playing a little bit of quarterback again?
