Report: Eagles Interested In Browns WR Terrelle PryorBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Wide Receivers Tuesday, March 7th, 2017
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.
