Terrelle Pryor's Role With Seattle Seahawks Only at QB... Right Now

Terrelle Pryor’s role with the Seattle Seahawks will be as the backup quarterback… at least for right now:

“Right now, he’s learning the quarterback position and (playing another spot) is not even an option,” general manager John Schneider said, per the Seattle Times.

Pryor still needs to get things straight at that position before he can think of any other possibilities on the offense. Pryor made a lot of things happen with his legs last season, but his main role with this team will be to hold the clipboard behind Russell Wilson and to be prepared to take the ball as the quarterback in the offense if an emergency were to occur.

He still may get on the field in a different capacity later, but that will come after he gets his other job squared away:

“The fantasy football guy in me is like, ‘Yeah, Kordell Stewart was great at it,'” Schneider said.

It would be fun to see Pryor in that capacity, but that brings a whole new set of things to the table.
