Terrelle Pryor Tossed from Cincinnati, Cut from the Team.

Terrelle Pryor is an interesting talent and it is a shame that we are rapidly realizing how he won’t get a chance to show off his abilities. Pryor burst onto the scene after getting picked up by Oakland in the Supplemental Draft. After about half of a season Pryor managed to make his way into the starting line up. From there the young man showed athletic prowess despite struggling with his arm. He racked up one of the longest runs from scrimmage for a QB and routinely showed game breaking ability on the ground. Since then he has been dropped from Oakland and now he has beendropped from the Bengals.

Pryor came into training camp with the intention of taking the #2 spot behind starting QB Andy Dalton. However this clearly was never meant to be as young AJ McCarron quickly distanced himself from Pryor, claiming the #2 spot with a quickness. Add on to the fact that Pryor got in trouble for uploading videos of himself at practice on Twitter, and things weren’t looking good. Finally backup Josh Johnson passed Pryor on the chart, pushing him to 4th, and the Bengals decided to move on.

Now Pryor, who has been in Seattle, Oakland, and Cincinnati, will try to attach himself to another team with the hope of getting an opportunity stated Brian Torchin. Pryor’s struggles just show off how tough it is to succeed in this league even with a ton of talent.
