Terrelle Pryor has reached out to Steeler receiver Antonio Brown and others for help in making the switch from quarterback to wide receiver, Bob Pompeani of KDKA in Pittsburgh reports.
“There’s not a lot of guys who work like I work,” says Pryor. “I truly believe that. I believe somebody who works extremely hard is Antonio Brown. Definitely I’ve worked with him, I have had to opportunity to work out with him an awful lot. We spent a lot of time together in 2011 down in Florida, so I saw his work ethic. The drive, the nights we would run in the sand along the ocean, run 6 miles every night.”
He will also be working out soon with both Randy Moss and Plaxico Burress. Both of whom are 6-foot-5 like Pryor.
“Just athletic cuts, moves, catching the ball with people on me, practicing that big time,” said Pryor. “Working on cuts, getting out of breaks. Really getting defenders on you and then losing them, the footwork and the timing of a route. So there’s a lot of stuff.”
But more than anything else, there’s motivation. Pryor wants to prove people wrong. He wants to show he belongs, even if he’ll be catching and not throwing the football.
“I believe I can get great at anything,” he said. “Just need the reps and just got to prove it.”
