No, Adam Schefter did not just come on Sportscenter and say the Giants have shown interest in Terelle Pryor. And yes, Pryor techniquely still has not been ruled eligible for the NFL supplemental draft. But, Pryor could be an intriguing option for the New York Giants come August 17th.
Why? Because Pryor does not figure to translate into a quarterback in the NFL. This is not a Tim Tebow debate, but more along the lines of he would not even be fit to be a backup. Since Pryor is such a gifted athlete, he is still considered to be worth a look for a tight end or wide receiver position.
Enter the Giants. Kevin Boss to Oakland. Ben Patrick to Shady Oaks Retirement Home. Leaving Bear Pascoe, Travis Beckum, and Daniel Coats topping the depth chart in the tight end position.
With Pryor the Giants could get a talented player — albeit with many off field problems, and a possible solution to the tight end problem. With a proper offensive coordinator (*cough* NOT KEVIN GILBRIDGE *cough*), and a strict coach (Coughlin and Belichick lead this list) Pryor can be an explosive weapon on offense and a major asset to any team.
I know Pryor is not the type of player the Giants usually look at, but stranger things have happened. The Giants did take a chance on Marvin Austin, and he seems to be grateful to have another opportunity after being suspended.
