For at least the next season, Jay Gruden is going to have the opportunity to use Terrelle Pryor as one of the primary weapons in the Redskins' offense.
By the sound of it, Jon Gruden is going to be envious of his brother as he does so.
"Probably one of the most interesting athletes I've ever seen in my lifetime," Jon said in a conference call on Wednesday. The former coach and current commentator was a part of workouts that involved Pryor and other Redskins offensive players a few weeks ago, so he got a chance to see the ex-Brown up close.
"I can't tell you how impressed I was with how he moved around, how sharp he was, and how much he loved it," he continued. "He's a freak. I really have not seen many athletes come through my doors like Terrelle Pryor."
Those are some very high compliments coming from someone who's seen a lot of football players in his lifetime, and they'll only increase the hype behind what many are calling a bargain signing by Washington.
Between Pryor being paired up with a much better quarterback than any of the ones from Cleveland, another year at a position that's still new to him and the motivation of working for a long-term contract next offseason, all signs point to a huge year for him. And if he ends up coming through with that production, one Gruden brother will be very pleased, while the other will be able to say he saw it coming.
