Free agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor says he is close to 100% healthy and could be ready to play as soon as Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Pryor has already been contacted by several interested teams, and Schefter says he may be an option for those that missed out on Amari Cooper.
Cooper, of course, is now a member of the Cowboys after shipping a first-round pick to Oakland for the former No. 4 overall selection. Five other teams, including the Jets and Eagles, were in on the bidding until the Raiders pulled the trigger.
The Jets cut Pryor over the weekend with an injury settlement. Gang Green is reportedly interested in a reunion, but they’ll face competition from other clubs.
Pryor has not returned to his Browns form, but he has caught touchdown passes in each of the past two games. In the Jets’ Week 6 win over the Colts, he hauled in five passes for 57 yards. Pryor should hold plenty of appeal for contenders, especially if he is healthy.
