Terrelle Pryor to Giants?

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.

    @Dan_Walls lmfao ! This dude said he runs a 4.3 !

    I saw a couple of people on twitter in response to my article say “Why we dont need a BAD QB” or “I hope this doesnt happen!” He obviously wouldnt be a quarterback with the Giants, but its an intriguing option for tight end, and wouldnt hurt to shed a 4th round pick on him.

    @FataTank lmaoo! Foh! Would you want him on the team?

  • FataTank

    @Dan_Walls we need a man like him

  • gmenhq

    WR maybe? just a fast utility player I guess. would the Giants use him as a part time wildcat QB like the Eagles used to use Vick?

  • ERobertsNY

    @gmenhq Thats what my thinking was with this post but this would never fly with Gilbride. It baffles me that he is still employed.

  • gmenhq

    its taken this long for them to get open to a 2 TE set…. but GB had their 2 and 3 FB set last year and won a SB. Its about being deceptive and executing more about pure gimmicks. Wildcat is still kindof a gimmick i think.
