Cleveland.com’s Mary Ann Cabot says that the Eagles are interested in Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, along with the Steelers, Giants, Titans and 49ers. I think the Birds need Pryor more than the Giants, Titans, Steelers or 49ers. I could see the Eagles trying to sign him on day one of free agency.
It doesn’t take a genius to see why the Birds are interested in the 27 year old Pryor, who was formerly a quarterback. He’s a freak of an athlete, who stands 6’4″, weighs 223 pounds and runs a 4.38 forty-yard dash. Last year in his first year as a wide receiver, Pryor caught 77 passes for 1007 yards with 4 touchdowns.
Remember he was also playing with terrible quarterbacks. With more experience and better quarterback play, his numbers should get even better.
Pryor would give the Eagles a number one receiver. He has the speed to be the deep threat they desperately need. His size allows him to be a potentially dominant red zone receiver, which is also needed. This former quarterback would immediately satisfy a big part of the Eagles needs at the wide receiver position, if they were to sign him.
Pryor has got a tremendous upside, when you consider he’s only played one season as a wide receiver, but can the Eagles sign him. I think they will go after him hard immediately when free agency starts. He’ll be the guy, who they give a boatload of money to sign.
