What do the Seahawks have planned for Pryor?
By Brady Henderson
The Seahawks didn’t exactly need a quarterback when they obtained Terrelle Pryor Monday in a trade with Oakland.
Seattle already has a Pro Bowl starter in Russell Wilson, one of the game’s best backups in Tarvaris Jackson and a talented developmental prospect in B.J. Daniels. And the Seahawks have only carried two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster the last two seasons.
That all led to speculation that the Seahawks have some alternate plans for Pryor, perhaps a role outside of quarterback that would take advantage of his athleticism. General manager John Schneider said that isn’t the case when he joined SiriusXM NFL Radio, but he didn’t dismiss the possibility, either.
“If there was ever an athlete that would be able to play a slash role – if you will – it would be this kind of player,” Schneider told “The SiriusXM Blitz” on Tuesday. “But that may be a little bit fantasy football at this time of the year. He is a quarterback, has been a quarterback, but no, we haven’t gotten into that. This guys is – like I said – he’s a very talented athlete and we can’t wait to kind of put our hands on him and have our staff spend some time with him.”
