Marrone on Pryor: ‘I’m sure he hopes to get back to the season that he had a couple years ago’

The Jacksonville Jaguars and eighth-year veteran WR Terrelle Pryor Sr. agree on a one-year contact. To make room on the roster, the Jaguars waived Lyndon Johnson.

 “He is an intelligent player. He is a former quarterback. He is very smart,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said of Pryor.  “I think he has communicated well up until this point, which I’ve only had limited communication [with him]. I think that he is a big athlete with a good catch radius, and I think he will be in position to compete for a job, and I’m sure he hopes to get back to the season that he had a couple years ago where he really had a heck of a year.”

In 2016, Pryor, 29, played in all 16 games in Cleveland and totaled 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and five total TDs (four receiving, one rushing).

Last season, he played in two games for Buffalo and six contests for the New York Jets, making a combined 16 receptions for 252 yards and two TDs.Pryor 6-4, 228, has 115 career receptions for 1,563 yards and 11 total TDs in 51 NFL games during stints with Oakland, Seattle, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Washington, the New York Jets and Buffalo.

Pryor was originally selected in the third round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft by Oakland, where he played three seasons primarily at quarterback.

If Pryor can capture that magic he had in Cleveland, this will turn out to be a great signing for Jacksonville.
