After impressing during a weekend tryout, former Buckeye Terrelle Pryor has been signed to an NFL contract by the Cincinnati Bengals. The signing comes six days after his release by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bengals.com hinted on Saturday that a signing could be in the works following Pryor's impressive work in front of Marvin Lewis and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson this weekend. His work ethic and poise had impressed the Bengals.
After Friday night’s meetings closed up the first day of rookie minicamp, Pryor could be found in the multi-purpose room at roughly 10:45 p.m. working on his throwing motion. Working on an exercise designed by the Dr. Tom House quarterback camp, Pryor slowly and deliberately threw a baseball into a padded wall, but finishing his throw with a sudden flick that whipped the rebound back to him on the ground.
Pryor will likely compete with Josh Johnson for one the Bengals' third-string quarterback slot. Johnson played for the Bengals in 2013 and re-signed with the team in April after a year in San Francisco.
