Chip Kelly wanted Terrelle Pryor to be his quarterback once before.
Now that Kelly is entering the NFL and he is bringing his unique offense from the college ranks, could Kelly try to work with Pryor again?
Chris Sprow lists Pryor as a potential target of Kelly as he begins his tenure as the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Kellyís fast-paced offense relies on a big, fast running quarterback. Pryor fits that bill.
Thatís why Kelly heavily recruited Pryor to Oregon. Pryor said he was intrigued, but he ended up staying close to home and he went to Ohio State.
It would be far from a given to think Pryor would be atop Kellyís wish list. But because of the previous interest and the scheme fit, Sprow is right. Pryor belongs on the list.
Pryor showed some promise in a season-ending loss at San Diego when he started for the injured Carson Palmer. Still, Pryor is considered raw and, at best, he will be Oaklandís backup next season.
Oakland doesnít have a second- or a fifth-round pick in the April draft. Because Oaklandís brass is likely not totally committed to Pryor, I could see it listening to the Eagles if it was offered a solid draft pick for Pryor because the Raiders have several immediate needs.
Again, Iím not saying Pryor is the perfect answer for Kelly, but thereís enough dot connecting here to think he could be on Kellyís list moving forward.
