Terrelle Pryor campaigns for shot with Steelers
It looks like Terrelle Pryor really wants to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It remains to be seen if the Steelers have any interest in signing the journeyman wide receiver from Jeannette, but he is lobbying for an opportunity nonetheless.
Pryor, a 30-year-old free agent, proclaimed via Instagram on Sunday that he is healthy and “ready to play for the home crowd.”
He said he isn’t playing unless it’s with “my home team.”
While he did not specifically name the Steelers, Pryor ended one post with “Colbert let’s go!”
Pryor said he can be a Pro Bowler if he gets “10 targets a game.”
“I love my City!!! And they love me,” Pryor wrote. “I’m ready!”
He has been with nine NFL teams in eight years since leaving Ohio State. The former quarterback, who transformed into a receiver and had a 1,000-yard season with the Cleveland Browns in 2013, has battled injuries in recent years.
