The Seahawks were willing to risk their final draft pick to see what Terrelle Pryor could offer them.
But at the moment, they’re only looking at what he can offer them under center.
Seahawks General Manager John Schneider made it clear Wednesday that the team was viewing Pryor only as a quarterback, after acquiring him for the Raiders for a seventh-round pick.
“Right now, he’s learning the quarterback position and [playing another spot] is not even an option,’’ Schneider said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.
The size and speed do make it tempting, especially with the top two spots on their depth chart covered.
“The fantasy football guy in me is like, ‘Yeah, Kordell Stewart was great at it,’ ’’ Schneider said, referring to the former Pittsburgh quarterback/receiver.
If the Seahawks get anything out of Pryor, it’s a bonus, although it would also mean that something happened to Russell Wilson, so they’re probably better off never finding out.
