Terrelle Pryor will have to convince Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to keep three quarterbacks on their roster if he is to make the team, because Pryor does not know how to play anywhere else.
“I don’t know how to catch. I don’t know how to run the ball as a running back,” Pryor said via the Seattle Times. “I’ve been a quarterback my whole life.”
Pryor is still rough around the edges at quarterback as well. Taken in the supplemental draft by Oakland , his two years with the Raiders were highlighted more-so by his legs than anything he could do with his arm.
“My path has been pretty wild,” Pryor said. “Having to enter the NFL through the supplemental draft, coming in the league with a suspension. It puts you on the backburner in coaches’ minds. They can think you’re too much to work with. I had to prove otherwise. So it’s just a blessing to be able to play this game and work on my craft. I feel lucky.”
Pryor threw for 1,798 yards and seven touchdowns last season while tossing 11 interceptions. As a runner he racked up 576 yards and two touchdowns. His lone career reception was a 22 yard catch in 2012.
