Quarterback Terrelle Pryor was released by the Bengals on Thursday, which was shortly followed by a significant development in his career.
Given the lack of progress he's shown as a passer at the NFL level, Pryor will test his athletic ability at another position altogether, as his agent Drew Rosenhaus reportedly began informing teams that his client is now switching to wide receiver, according to ProFootballTalk.
Pryor was signed by the Bengals just five days after being released by the Chiefs.
He has struggled to stay with a team since an unsuccessful three-year stint with the team that drafted him, the Oakland Raiders.
Pryor entered the NFL via the 2011 Supplemental Draft, taken by the Raiders in the third round. He departed the organization with a 3-7-0 record.
He threw for 1,798 passing yards and seven touchdowns to 11 interceptions.
Pryor, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound athlete with sub-4.40 speed, could draw interest as a pass catcher.
