PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) Pittsburgh native Terrelle Pryor has shown a great interest in joining his hometown Steelers.

Pryor, 30, made multiple posts on his Instagram story saying that he is now completely healthy and wants nothing more than to play for the black and gold.

In the posts, Pryor described how playing is not about the money and has turned down multiple offers from teams.

‘I’m not playing ball unless it’s with my home team.’

His motivation is to bring a championship to Pittsburgh.

Wanting to be a team player, Pryor said in a post that he would take ’10 targets a game’ or one and play a team game.

Pryor also said how it would be about more than just football, he wants to ‘Do more for Pittsburgh’ by visiting children’s hospitals and being a leader.

Playing high school football at Jeannette High School, Pryor went to Ohio State University as a quarterback.

He would hold the quarterback position for his first few seasons in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders.

He would have a two-year stint with the Cleveland Browns where he stepped into the wide receiver position and would go on to have a 1,000 receiving yard season in 2016.

Since leaving the Browns Pryor has not had a consistent spot in the NFL, bouncing around from the Washington Redskins, to the New York Jets, to the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past four seasons.

In those four seasons Pryor has played only 17 games thanks to injuries.

‘Black and gold I’m ready to go.’

It seems like the local star is pleading his case for a crack at the league again but only with the Steelers, is it time for him to get his chance?
