This offseason, the Jets signed QB Teddy Bridgewater, drafted QB Sam Darnold and re-signed QB Josh McCown. Regardless of who gets to be the starting quarterback, they're going to need someone to throw to.
WR Terrelle Pryor, who signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal in March, certainly believes he can be that guy, after having 'minor' ankle surgery recently.
The Jets will hope to have a healthy Quincy Enunwa, who missed all of last season, to go with Pryor, Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse. Pryor is excited about his teammates.
"We can be a pretty darnn-good unit," Pryor said. "We're versatile. There's different guys who can do different things. We got Robby that can run, take the top off. We got Kearse, he controls and handles the whole middle [of the field], and we got Quincy. He's just a beast. He catches the ball. With me, it is what it is, I'm going to do what I'm going to do."
Pryor broke out in 2016 with the Browns. In his first full season as a wide receiver, he caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. But, last season, he didn't live up to expectations with the Redskins. The former quarterback had just 20 catches for 240 yards and one touchdown in 11 games. But Pryor believes it was due to that ankle injury he just fixed.
"I just really couldn't focus on my game, because I was too worried about my foot," Pryor said. "It kind of took control and controlled my mind."
Speaking of that surgery, will Pryor be healthy and ready to go at training camp?
"For now, in my mind, I'll be there the first day," Pryor said.
The Jets first preseason game is on August 10 against the Falcons.
