Former 1,000-yard receiver Terrelle Pryor has not suited up in the NFL since splitting time between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets last season. It wasn’t a smashing success with the former Ohio State quarterback catching 16 combined passes in eight games.

Now 30 years old, Pryor is pleading with one team for an opportunity. He wants his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers to sign him.

Pryor also noted that he turned down other opportunities and will only return to the NFL with Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh could use a reinforcement at wide receiver with JuJu Smith-Schuster suffering a concussion on Thursday and second-year receiver James Washington failing to step up.

Pryor’s best season came as a member of the division-rival Cleveland Browns back in 2016. That season saw him catch 77 passes for 1,007 yards. He’s compiled just 492 receiving yards over the past two seasons.
