The Bills have a few new faces as they get ready to host the Bears this Sunday. Needing help at wide receiver, they are giving Terrelle Pryor a shot.
The Bills offense has been historically bad, so that unit could use a boost. Enter free agent Pryor, a former 1,000-yard receiver who's tall on talent and self-confidence.
"Man I can ball. I can ball, bro," Pryor said. "I'm not being cocky. I just know how I study and how I work and how I practice man, I compete at a high level. I expect high things from myself and I expect high things from the offense."
Pyror says he was underused in his last stop with the Jets, who released him after an injury earlier this season. The 29-year-old had 14 catches for 235 yardrs and two touchdowns in six games in New York. He joins a Bills offense that's severely struggled to get the ball to its wide outs.
"Like I told the receivers, from being a quarterback it's big that we pick up the quarterback," Pryor said. "Obviously the play so far hasn't been good with everything that's going on. We've just got to pick each other up. Pick him up. Stay a little longer, watch film a little longer and that's how we'll become successful."
Given the Bills tumultuous quarterback situation and the fact Pryor played the position in college and when he first entered the NFL, some have wondered if he might return to that spot in Buffalo. Pryor says anyone with that notion is full of hot — or maybe cold — air.
"You guys know if you watch my film I could throw some plays, but through this wind I won't make it. You guys will cut my throat out. You'll run me out of Buffalo," Pryor said.
Pryor says he's already running through the playbook, but how much of an effect he has against the team from the Windy City on Sunday remains up in the air.
