When you’re clinging to life on an NFL roster, and you’re old coach who you have a relationship with gets hired as THE man, you feel a little bit better about your future.
Terrelle Pryor impressed with his one catch for 42 yards coming in the season finale, and it left fans wondering why the Browns cut him in the first place. Had he developed with Cleveland all year, instead of being waived early on, perhaps Pryor would’ve been more valuable.
Pryor was with Oakland 2011, when the Raiders went 8-8. Fans caught of glimpse of what Prior could do as wideout, and if there’s anyone who can continue to aid his growth, it should be Jackson.
Prior to the hiring, Pryor talked about hiring his old boss in Cleveland. “Every day when I woke up (in Oakland), I was like, ‘man, I get to go to work,'” Pryor, a former Raider and Bengal under Jackson, told Cleveland.com. “I wasn’t even playing in 2011 when Hue was head coach, and you don’t always feel a part of things. But Hue made it fun every single time.”
