Terrelle Pryor’s game for the ages lands him in the Hall of Fame

It might not be a bust, but the QB-turned-receiver will have some gear enshrined in Canton.

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor is finally making a name for himself as an NFL talent in Cleveland. Years after making his professional debut, it seems like all he needed was a little time with Hue Jackson to find success. With the quarterback situation seemingly always a disaster in Cleveland, the team needed Pryor to step back into a familiar role — one that landed some of his gear in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In the Browns’ Week 3 matchup against the Dolphins, Pryor did something that hadn’t been done in over 50 years — he became the first player to have at least 120 receiving yards, 30 passing yards, and 20 rushing yards in a single game since Frank Gifford in 1959.

This will be Pryor’s second set of gear on display in Canton. His first being his Oakland jersey from the Raiders-Steelers game in 2013. Pryor had a 93-yard rushing touchdown, the longest run by a quarterback in NFL history, and also the longest rushing touchdown ever by a Raiders player.

And while the Buckeye is honored to have his gear in the Hall of Fame, his ultimate goal is to get a gold bust there too:

Only time will tell.
