Terrelle Pryor to Work Out for Jets

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Terrelle Pryor has a workout scheduled with the Jets.

Jason LaCanfora indicates a Pryor workout will not come until next week.

The Raiders picked Pryor in the third round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft out of Ohio State. He was selected as a quarterback. He spent brief periods in the Seahawks, Chiefs, Bengals, and Browns organizations. He was let go recently with the Browns, where he was attempting to convert to wide receiver.

There is no harm in trying a player out, but I do not see any appeal Pryor has as either a quarterback or a wide receiver. He is pretty old for a project player. If he attempts to come aboard as a receiver, he would be virtually starting at square one at the position, learning everything about technique from scratch. He has good measurables, but there are plenty of younger players with actual experience at receiver available with great measurables. Since he has no practice squad eligibility, the Jets would have to burn a roster spot on him.

Again, there's no harm in working him out, but I don't see any reason for the Jets to sign him.
