We don’t know how much truth is behind the “extensive interest” part, but we do know Pryor’s willingness to switch positions is an obvious attempt to save his NFL career.
Pryor started nine games at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders in 2013. He had some moments where it looked like he might develop into a viable starter, but he ultimately turned the ball over too much and struggled to make plays with his arm.
Some comments Pryor made exactly a year ago about switching to receiver might discourage interested teams.
Pryor has plenty of size at 6-foot-4, 233 pounds, but learning a new position at age 25 is no easy task. While it would not be shocking if a team signed him as a wide receiver to give him a shot, Pryor will have a very difficult time making a 53-man roster.
