The Terrelle Pryor experiment will soon be over in Oakland. Many fans say that he never got a a legitimate chance to be the starter for the Raiders, but he will find himself with a new team in 2014 through a trade or being released. Even with limited experience in the NFL, several teams would be interested in adding this dual-threat quarterback.
Here are five teams that could be interested in signing Terrelle Pryor.
The 34-year-old Carson Palmer cannot be the starting quarterback for much longer. The Cardinals are trying to make a playoff run while Palmer is still the starter, but the 2014 season could go down in flames if he becomes injured. Pryor would be a solid backup who could eventually become the future quarterback for Arizona. If the Cardinals signed Pryor, they would not have to use a pick to select a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft.
The jury is still out on E.J. Manuel, but the best thing the Bills could hope for is a quarterback controversy with the signing of Pryor. The team would be able to find out which quarterback could lead the team into the future, and Pryor could be traded to a quarterback desperate team if he didn't work out.
The backup quarterback for the Carolina Panthers is Derek Anderson. If Newton were to become injured, there is no way that Anderson could lead the team to victory against the New Orleans Saints or any of the other talented NFC teams that the Panthers would face. Pryor would find himself in a system that can provide success for a mobile quarterback.
Big Ben cannot play for the Pittsburgh Steelers forever, and Mike Tomlin needs to get his team ready to form a new identity. Fans are skeptical that Landry Jones will ever become the franchise quarterback, but most of the Steeler nation would be happy to bring in home grown Pryor. With his adaptability and playmaking ability, Pryor would have a nice career in Pittsburgh.
Pryor needs to pray that he can land with the Philadelphia Eagles. The team already has Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley as backups, but Chip Kelly would find ways to get Pryor involved. Who knows, Kelly may even be able to convince the 6-foot-4, 233-pound quarterback to become a wide receiver or a tight end.
