Pryor has reportedly indicated he does not intend to switch positions, meaning his sole focus will be on winning a backup job over AJ McCarron and The young quarterback didn't have a job in 2014 after being released by the Seahawks, but could stand a chance to nab the backup spot in Cincinnati with a strong training camp and preseason.

Pryor was released by the Chiefs on Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.
Pryor signed a one-year contract in January, after failing to make the Seahawks' roster out of training camp in August. The Bengals worked him out as a wide receiver in October, but he never signed with a team during the season. Meanwhile, the Chiefs have Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray (knee) to compete for the backup job behind Alex Smith.

The Chiefs have signed Pryor to a one-year contract, ESPN.com reports.
Pryor joins the Chiefs' crowded backup QB mix behind starter Alex Smith, along with Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray. Pryor is no lock to make the Chiefs' roster this coming season, but his chances on that front could improve in the event that the team elects to part ways with Daniel (and his $3.75 million salary in 2015) for salary cap purposes.

Pryor was among the players the Bengals worked out Tuesday, though strictly as a receiver.
The Bengals are desperate in their need for wide receiver help, with A.J. Green probably still out this week and Marvin Jones out for the season. They eventually settled on Greg Little ahead of Pryor.

Pryor was released by the Seahawks on Friday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Pryor was competing with Tavaris Jackson for the backup quarterback spot on the Seahawks roster, but appears to have been beaten out. He does have past starting experience and a decent track record with the Raiders, so it's possible he could latch onto another team.

Pryor was 1-of-4 passing for 10 yards Friday, but he ran three times for 59 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown in Seattle's second preseason game against the Chargers.
Pryor is competing for the back up job with Tarvaris Jackson, who did not play. Pryor didn't get much chance to throw because the Seahawks were blowing out the Chargers. His touchdown run was a designed play, and he showed why the Seahawks are taking such a long look at him. Jackson, though, is the incumbent and is more steady, if less dynamic. The Seahawks likely won't keep three quarterbacks.

Seahawks QB Terrelle Pryor isn't interested in learning a new position.
"I don't know how to catch," Pryor said. "I don't know how to run the ball as a running back. I've been a quarterback my whole life." At 6-foot-4, 233 pounds with 4.4 wheels, Pryor is one of the most imposing athletes in the entire NFL, but too rudimentary of a passer to ever be a starting quarterback. Trying out for a "slash" role would likely increase his 53-man roster odds, but like Tim Tebow, Pryor wants to stick at the only position he's ever known. Were Pryor to be cut loose by the world-champion Seahawks, someone else would likely pounce on him as a reserve.

ESPN's Jim Trotter says Terrelle Pryor has a "legit shot" to win Seattle's backup quarterback job.

GM John Schneider said Terrelle Pryor is exclusively learning the quarterback position right now.
Pryor is essentially competing with B.J. Daniels for the third-string job as he's highly unlikely to beat out backup Tarvaris Jackson. In reality, Schneider saw the chance to get an athletic freak and developmental prospect in exchange for a seventh-round pick and pounced. He previously didn't rule out using Pryor in a "slash" role on Sundays.

GM John Schneider didn't rule out using Terrelle Pryor in a "slash" role.
The Seahawks gave up a mere seventh-round pick to acquire an athletic specimen that goes 6'4/233 and ran a 4.38 at his 2011 Combine. It'll be up to the coaches to figure out how to use Pryor. They know he's not going to climb any higher than third on the quarterback depth chart.
