Terrelle Pryor has honed a solid couple of seasons. This season he is expected to be Kirk Cousins’ favorite wide receiver target with the Washington Redskins. That is after he had a breakout season in 2016 with the Cleveland Browns with 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. All of that came after he spent the first three seasons of his career struggling as a quarterback before changing course and becoming a wide receiver.
Pryor understands the dynamics of the NFL, and that great days aren’t always automatic, especially at the start of one’s career. That is why when the NFL’s Hard Knocks on HBO aired the releasing of Tampa Bay Buccaneers embattled kicker Robert Aguayo, Pryor took to social media to make an encouraging message to the former second-round pick.

Pryor’s message was similar to that of Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter and general manager Jason Licht. Aguayo, who has since been claimed off waivers by the Chicago Bears, can gather the encouraging comments and strive to succeed in the NFL. His career isn’t over, and many much like Pryor know a thing or two about falling early in their pro careers before getting back up and becoming great.
