Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor is seeking redemption after a disappointing season with the Washington Redskins. Here’s his full profile as he prepares for training camp with the New York Jets.
When the New York Jets announced that wide receiver Terrelle Pryor was signed, it sent mixed reactions across the spectrum. On one side, the Jets were bringing in a former offensive playmaker that was the lone bright spot on a lackluster Cleveland Browns offense a few years ago. On the other side, Pryor is coming off the most disappointing season of his career where he didn’t do much of anything with the Washington Redskins last year.
Pryor suffered a severe ankle injury last season and has yet to fully participate in anything this offseason for the Jets. He was doing light work during organized team activities and mandatory minicamp but is still at about 50 percent if he’ll be fully able to compete in training camp.
The Jets have a crowded situation at wide receiver and will likely hold five, maybe six players tops for the positional group once training camp is in the books. Here is Pryor’s full profile as he prepares for his first training camp with the Jets.

2017 SEASON REVIEW
Last season with the Redskins, Pryor totaled 240 receiving yards, 20 receptions, and just one touchdown. He missed the majority of the season due to a severe ankle injury.
2018 SEASON OUTLOOK
Pryor has his work cut out for him to make the final roster of the Jets but hopefully, will be healed up in time to compete in training camp. If he makes it, expect to see him be the No. 5 or No. 6 receiver on the depth chart. It’s expected that Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, Jermaine Kearse will take up the first three starting spots with the remaining spots used for depth and rotational purposes.
It all comes down to Pryor’s health to see what kind of impact he’ll have throughout the regular season. If healthy, he could be a pleasant surprise and likely make a name for himself again as a premier red-zone threat. If he has issues staying healthy, he will be on the outside looking in just like last year with the Redskins.
TRAINING CAMP PREDICTION
Unfortunately for Pryor, he has the odds against him. The Jets stacked up on wide receivers this season and still have younger drafted players like Chad Hansen and ArDarius Stewart that will also be competing for final roster spots who have more upside. Don’t expect Pryor to stick around by the end of the summer as he’ll likely still have injury issues with his ankle that will limit his ability to prove his worth to decision makers.
