Last week, a report came out from ESPN.com that said Terrelle Pryor was struggling in OTAs.
Seahawks beat reporter Terry Blount wrote that “many of [Pryor's] throws have been off the mark, sometimes too high and others too low. He doesn’t look comfortable on some of his reads.”
However, that was written after only two practices, and on Tuesday, Danny O’Neil of “Hawk Talk” said Pryor may have made some major developments since then.
He spoke on 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock & Danny” show and said that while he knows Pryor has been struggling early in OTAs, the Seahawks believe a turning point may be in the near future:
I have not thought he looks particularly good. However, that’s a pretty layman’s observation from just a few workouts. Talking to someone who’d know yesterday, I heard the Seahawks believe he’s made as much progress as anyone over the past month. In fact, they feel there’s been a breakthrough of sorts for him.
Pryor was acquired by the Seahawks in a late-April trade with the Oakland Raiders, in exchange for a 2014 seventh round draft pick.
There were talks last month that Pryor would be moved to play another position in Seattle, but right now it doesn’t look like that’s the case.
Jackson is the favorite to win the backup job, which was his last season.
But Daniels, Price and now, apparently, Pryor, could make a case to bump Jackson to the No. 3 spot on the depth chart.
Pryor played in 11 games last season with the Raiders, completing 156 of 272 passes for 1,798 yards and seven touchdowns. He also threw 11 interceptions.
Pryor also used his legs a lot last season, running the ball 83 times for 576 and a pair of TDs.
In training camp, we will get a chance to see some more of his skill-sets. Will it be enough to take the No. 2 QB spot on the depth chart?
We will find out in August.
