There’s no question that the Washington Redskins have had their issues with wide outs. While there have been many successes and breakout stars, the consistency at wide out hasn’t been there. This year was no exception as the Redskins chose to not resign DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. DeSean Jackson went to Tampa, and Garcon was signed by San Francisco. Losing both of them is enough to make fans like Stephen Troese Jr. worried about who Cousins will throw to.
Is There a Light at the End of the Tunnel?
However, there could be a bright side of the story that Redskins fans can take solace in as they wait for training camp later this summer. According to reports, Kirk Cousins has been very happy with the offseason workouts he has had with Terrelle Pryor. If you hadn’t heard the news, the Redskins signed Terrelle Pryor over the off-season.
Although Pryor was considered a raw talent, he has size, and he is coming off a 1,000 yard receiving season with the Cleveland Browns. The Browns aren’t exactly known as an offensive juggernaut. In addition to that, Pryor is a former quarterback, so he knows how to run an offense.
This is where Kirk Cousins has been the most impressed with Pryor. He has said that he has been impressed with Terrelle Pryor’s knowledge of the game, and he loves the fact that he can talk about “two-invert” and “quarters on the backside.” He has also discussed how Pryor will hold him accountable and make him a better quarterback.
So will Pryor be the steady force at wide receiver that Cousins and the Redskins so sorely need? Stephen Troese Jr. and other fans will find out soon enough. In the meantime, we will just have to wait until training camp.
