Bengals Sign QB Terrelle Pryor


Terrelle Pryor earned another shot at an NFL quarterback gig.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced Sunday they signed the signal-caller to a contract after his tryout during rookie mini-camp.

Pryor will battle backups AJ McCarron and Josh Johnson for a spot on the roster this summer.

The athletically gifted Pryor offers a playmaker behind Andy Dalton, should he make the roster. While his scatter-shot passing is an issue, his arm-talent could be an upgrade on the weaker-throwing McCarron or Johnson.

At 6-foot-4, 233 pounds, many have discussed a possible position change for Pryor, but the 25-year-old insists he’ll only play quarterback.

“If I can’t play quarterback, I can’t play football,” he said before his tryout
