Former Chiefs quarterback Terrelle Pryor moving to receiver

The Chiefs’ union with quarterback Terrelle Pryor didn’t last long. The team waived the former Ohio State star on Tuesday just five months after signing him to a one-year deal.

Former Chiefs quarterback Terrelle Pryor is ready to try a different position.

As first reported by Pro Football Talk on Thursday, Pryor’s agent — Drew Rosenhaus — has been informing teams that his client is switching to receiver.

Pryor was recently released by the Bengals, who signed him after the Chiefs cut him in May.

In the past, Rosenhaus has indicated that his client was intent on being a quarterback, where he played 14 games for the Oakland Raiders in 2012 and 2013 and completed 170 of 302 passes (56.3 percent) for 1,953 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

It’s hard to say which, if any, team will take a flier on him, though I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some interest in Pryor as a receiver, given his size (6 feet 6 and 233 pounds) and impressive athleticism.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see where Pryor lands next.
