Pryor played in six games for the New York Jets and two games for the Buffalo Bills last season, but was released by both teams during the year. Pryor previously played for the Washington Redskins in 2017 and two seasons for the Cleveland Browns before that. He began his NFL career with the Oakland Raiders, where he played as a quarterback from 2011-13.
In his NFL career as a receiver, Pryor has caught 115 passes for 1,563 yards and seven touchdowns.
With the Jaguars' signing of Pryor, Ohio State now has 10 wide receivers on NFL rosters. Pryor also joins one of his former Ohio State teammates, Andrew Norwell, on the Jaguars' roster.
