Terrelle Pryor signs with Chiefs

The former Ohio State QB is headed to Kansas City.

After he announced it himself on his personal Twitter account earlier Wednesday evening, multiple media reports confirmed that former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor had signed a 1-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs are coming off a season that saw them nearly make the playoffs for a second year in a row under coach Andy Reid, but ultimately come up just short. Starter (and former Urban Meyer protege) Alex Smith seems comfortably entrenched as the guy in KC, but there's been speculation as to the long term viability of primary backup Chase Daniel. Daniel started for the Chiefs in their win over rivals San Diego in the regular season finale after Smith was unable to go.

This mark's Pryor's third team in what will be the fifth year of his NFL career. Pryor was traded from the Oakland Raiders, whom took Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft prior to the 2011 season, to the Seattle Seahawks but was let go prior to the season. After workouts around the league, the Chiefs finally were the first team to take a formal chance on Pryor.

He'll still have to make it through minicamps and fall camp in order to suit up for the team next year, but that process begins now. Pryor even mentioned that he threw to fellow former Buckeye Duron Carter on Wednesday in Kansas City:

Best of luck to the former Buckeye.
