Could Anyone Use A Receiver? – Daniel Beebe


Every year we find ourselves looking back on the NFL season and realizing that someone came out of nowhere to make a huge impact for his team. In 2016, that player was Terrelle Pryor. When Pryor left Ohio State most believed he wouldn’t accomplish much in the NFL, well he changed positions and became a receiver that dominated for the Cleveland Browns.

During his single season in Cleveland, Pryor put up 77 receptions and over 1,000 yards. He only scored 4 touchdowns, but it is Cleveland. The Browns are always an offensively challenged team and Pryor still puts up huge numbers. As only the Browns can do, they couldn’t keep Pryor in Cleveland. He decided to leave and take his talents to Washington. The Redskins gave him a 1 year for $8 million. Pryor bet on himself and lost miserably. He had a terrible year in Washington. He only managed to grab 20 receptions for 240 yards.

Now Pryor is a free agent and seeking employment. Pryor is still a physical specimen with speed and toughness to beat up on any NFL secondary. The Buccaneers may be a landing spot for this wide receiver. The Buccaneers could get a very cheap receiver that could put up Pro Bowl numbers. Pryor stands 6’4 and 228 pounds. That would be a dynamic trio of receivers (Evans, Jackson, and Pryor). Let’s not forget that O.J. Howard should play a bigger role in Coach Koetter’s offense this year, too. Let’s surround Jameis with as many weapons as possible and chuck the football all over the field.
