Pryor is ready to make the most of his chance and win over coaches and teammates.
Oakland Raiders backup Quarterback Terrelle Pryor says he is ready for the impending position battle with incumbent starter Carson Palmer this summer in Oakland.
While the 23-year-old remains coy about the possibility of starting, Pryor wants to prove to the team that he can be a leader in the locker room.
“Right now I’m trying to win over my coaches, win over my teammates and everybody in the facility and let them know that I wanna be a leader, a great leader and I’m there for the long haul,” Pryor said.
“I wanna win just as bad as everybody else and that’s what I want to prove to everybody before I really get into talks of starting and stuff like that.”
The former Ohio State QB is another example of the latest breed in QB. He is just as mobile, if not more so than Cam Newton, and can be very productive as a passer too.
Oakland have said that there will be an open competition for places in the impending training camp, and if Pryor shows off his immense physical tools as a runner, whilst showing improvements in his passing skills, he could be starting week one for the franchise, and breathe new life into a stagnant organisation.
