According to a recent interview with the Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neill on ESPN radio, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Terrelle Pryor has had a “breakthrough” and is making progress in becoming a better player.
From the interview:
O’Neill: “I would cool the jets on the whole Terrelle Pryor is struggling. 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.”
What this means for Pryor remains to be seen. Current starting quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, meaning Pryor will continue to ride the bench for the near future, barring any injury to Wilson.
The Seahawks sent a seventh-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders in April for Pryor.
In 11 games last season, Pryor threw for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also ran for 576 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a 93-yard scramble against the Pittsburg Steelers.
